"Vindemio is a vineyard estate created in 2006 by a group of friends united by a passion for wine, and a belief in the conviviality and pleasure that comes with wine. They have been brought together by Jean Marot, former winemaker of Domaine le Murmurium, and his son Guillaume. The small property, at the foot of Mont Ventoux, consists of 13 hectares of organically and biodynamically farmed vineyards near the villages of Mormoiron
and Villes sur Auzon at about 300 meters elevation. In the October 2009 issue of the Wine Advocate, Robert Parker commented, "Sadly, there is no American importer for this estate,which was founded in 2006." - No longer an issue!"
"The name "Imagine" refers to the importance of using one's imagination when tasting wine. Certain aromas can help to recall pleasant memories from the past creating an emotional bond between a wine and its consumer." - Importer
