What we produce

At Chateau Unang we aim to produce the best wine possible from this unique terroir.  We are in the appellation of  Ventoux which is finally starting to receive some of the respect it now merits.  We are proud to be one of the most renown and admired wine producers amongst a group of fine independent winemakers that are slowly making their mark in the Rhone Valley.

Yields
We aim to keep the yields low and make the vines work to produce the best grapes possible. We have Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan in red grapes  rousanne, clairette and Grenache blanc in the white grapes.

Whites
The white grapes are all grown in the valley at the bottom of the hill, where they benefit from the cooler early morning air, and staying shaded longer in the heat of summer  giving our white wines the delicious fresh minerality with a lively acidity for which they are known.

Reds
The red grapes are spread over the rest of the hill between 250 and 320 metres above sea level, divided by thick swathes of oak forest and groves of olives and cherry trees with an aspect south east.  The Grenache Pins at the very top and forming the basis for our top cuvée La Croix.  The Syrah secretaire, that has to be protected from hungry wild boar in the last few weeks before picking forming the basis for la Source.

Organic
The white wines made in 2012 are certified organic and the reds made in 2013 will be organic, completing our conversion of three years.
