The Rhone Gang was born about 10 years ago, with the idea of travelling together and swap information on winemaking, communication and exports. 


The Rhone Gang gathers three of the hottest wineries of Southern Rhone :


• Château de Saint Cosme, run by Louis Barruol in Gigondas

• Château de Montfaucon, run by Rodolphe de Pins in Lirac

• Château Pesquié, run by Frederic Chaudiere in Ventoux


Saint Cosme, Pesquié and Montfaucon are setting new standards for Rhône wines.
