"Domaine Les Ondines is situated in the village of Sarrians in the heart of the Vacqueyras appellation. Winemakers Robert and Jérémy Onde own 6 hectares in Côtes du Rhône “La Buissonade”, 18 hectares in Vacqueyras, and 12 hectares in Côtes du Rhône Villages “Le Plan Dieu” which they farm “en fermage”. The family has grown grapes for many generations but Jérémy is the first generation to make and bottle the wine at the estate. This wine is from two parcels: La Buissonade and Plan de Dieu. Set at the foot of Mont Ventoux, the vineyard known as “La Buissonade” is located three kilometers from Vacqueyras. The 6-hectare vineyard is comprised of three parcels that include both hillsides and a rocky plateau that resembles the soils of “Plan de Dieu”. The Côtes du Rhône is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. 60% of the Grenache vines were planted more than forty years ago. The Syrah is planted mostly on the rocky plateau, a terroir which severely limits the vineyard’s yields and is responsible for the dark and wild herb “garrigue” flavors in the wine.
