Did you know?

  • The Ardeche is on the right bank of the Rhone and its wines are Vin de Pays des Coteaux de l’Ardeche.
  • A Vin de Pays wine (VDP) is a wine made in a particular region from a list of allowable grape varieties and also subject to testing and analysis.  VDP regions are larger and not as restrictive than the AOC ones and the choice of grape varieties is wider.
  • All New World Wines are effectively Vin de Pays, they have no equivalent of AOC wines.
  • The Ardeche produces 3 types of red grapes: Grenache, Syrah & Carignan.
  • These wines are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Syrah and Granache are commonly found in the Rhone Valley.  Mas d’Intras is in Valvigneres which was originally known as Vallis Vinnaria meaning the valley of the vines.  It is a family owned vineyard in the Ardeche, situated just North of the Rhone Valley, and produces equally stunning wines.  South East France and the land has been in the family for over 4 centuries.  Alphonse Robert had been working on the family land since 1943 and after many years of working with the local Cave Co operative, Alphonse and his wife Francoise started their own estate, Mas d’Intras in 1982.
