- Rhone Valley
- Condrieu AOC
Domaine de la Mordorée owns the vineyard in the condrieu appellation.
The vineyard was abandonned back in the 1960 as the work couldn't be done by machine. Christophe Delorme found some old plantings of Viognier in the middle of the growing vegatation that took over the piece of property.
The planting was completly redone in 2004.
