Located in the village of Vacqueyras, at the foot of Dentelles de Montmirail, Domaine de La Colline St. Jean has been a family-owned property for several generations. Roland Alazard, his son Cyril and his daughter Aurélie go to great lengths to preserve character and tradition in their Côtes-du-Rhône wines. They have 25 hectares of vineyards in Vin de Pays du Vaucluse, Côtes-du-Rhône, Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Beaumes de Venise. Their vines are 50 years old on average, planted on clay/limestone soil. The hillside vineyards are heated by the sun, giving the resulting wine a generous crimson robe, complex flavors and a delicate roundness on the palate.
