The Richeaume Wine Estate, Practicing Biodynamic Method Since 1972

The Richeaume wine estate is located in the Provence region, and all its vineyards, grain fields, and olive groves are cultivated under ecological guidelines. Since 1972, they have been practicing biodynamic methods at their estate with complete respect and care for the environment. Henning Hoesch wanted to return back to agriculture. He, along with his wife, Julia, set up the winery between Puyloubier and Rousset, spanning an area of 65 hectares. The natural and biological production is as essential for the winery as the quality of their wines. Most of the wines are made without following the guidelines of the AOC or other defined ideologies and traditions. To construct the wine cellar, Henning consulted Italian architect Carlo Scarpa along with Jean Tchepitchian.

Gifted Terroir of Mont Sainte Victoire

Mont Sainte Victoire gives a unique microclimate to the region. It helps the soil to dry after heavy rainfall. The red soil found here is perfect for natural fertilization and allows to grow high-quality grapes for their wines. Solar cellars are used to generate energy, and water tanks regulate temperature in the cellar. An effort is made to recycle natural resources and protect the environment as much as possible. Yields are lowered to ensure the quality of the grapes. The main grape varieties that grow in their estate are Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot, Grenache Blanc, Rol, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc. The best grapes are handpicked and used to make their organic red, white, and rose wines. Even in the cellar, vinification takes place naturally without the use of any chemical additives.
