The Domaine des Escaravailles has been the property of the FERRAN family for three generations.

Founded in 1953 by Jean-Louis FERRAN and his sons Daniel and Jean-Pierre,

it is currently managed since 1999 by Gilles, the son of Daniel.

The Domaine owes its name to the Occitan "escaravay" or Scarabée.

This nickname was given by the inhabitants of the village to the Black Penitents of Avignon,

owners at the time (Rasteau archives in 1623).

The vineyards extend over 40 Ha in Rasteau of stony and sloping clay-limestone hillsides

and 25 Ha on the neighboring terroirs of Cairanne, Roaix, Villedieu and Saint Roman de Malegarde.

The vines are cultivated in the old fashioned way with organic plowing and fertilizers.

The harvests are essentially manual and sorted. The grapes are then destemmed,

vinified and aged in the highest semi-underground cellar in Rasteau, located in the heart of the vineyard.

Lovely example of a Cotes du Rhone
