"Founded in 1927, Domaine Isle Saint Pierre is located on a small island in the Rhône River. It is run today by fourth generation vigneron Julien Henry.
The proximity to the water provides a cooling influence that allows the wines to retain great freshness even in the far south of France, and deep well-draining sedimentary soils comprised of sand and silt.
Because of the terroir and temperature, they are able to grow varietals that thrive in a Continental climate, such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
In 2018, the estate received the Vignerons Développement Durable certification in recognition of their commitment to sustainable winegrowing.
Although the Isle Saint Pierre wines come from the very southern stretches of France, they display wonderful freshness and aromatic appeal. At harvest, as soon as the grapes enter the cellar, they are cooled to a temperature below 16°C. The whites are pneumatically pressed and gently release their juice free of any oxidation, thus retaining their aromas.
Domaine Isle Saint Pierre is our answer to lively, easy-drinking "bistro-style" wines that are perfect for everyday drinking!" - Importer
