Vacqueyras is located right next to Gigondas AOC.
It mostly stretches on Sarrians territory, where are the famous plateaux named “Les Garrigues”. This area is made of clay and rocks. The beautiful landscape of the “garrigue” is typical of the Mediterranean area. The wines themselves smell the spices, the dried herbs…you will taste the “Garrigue” in your glass, welcome to Provence …
