The meeting resulted in a common decision on the production of wines from Syrah grapes grown on old vines on a beautiful vineyard Andezon. Until that fateful encounter a dark, full-bodied Syrah grapes was sold in bulk to one of the producers in the Rhone Valley. Eric Solomon, to assess the potential and character of this grape variety, decided not to miss business opportunities, and after 10 years of Syrah wines have become central to its wine portfolio. A few years later to the south of the Cotes du Rhone was acquired land "Signargues", known for its old vines Grenache grapes. These vines produce very low crop yields, allowing a wine with an incredible concentration of flowers and fruit. An excellent blend of Syrah, Grenache, embodied in vivid, complex wines, displays all the strength and character of the terroir and varietal multifaceted wealth.
