Les Vignerons d'Estezargues is a super little co-op located near Avignon. They are one of Rhone Valley's most unique wine co-operatives, a winery where member growers bring their yield to be vinified and cared for. Usually, co-operatives aim is to produce wine in big quantities, however the approach at Les Vignerons D'Estézargues is different - to work with organically farmed grapes from the best plots and produce wine made with minimum intervention, with the goal of expressing the natural beauty of the land and fruit in every bottle. They are perhaps the only co-operative to do so and for that, receive appreciation of wine lovers and critics worldwide. Only indigenous grapes are used here, no filtration, no fining and an absolute minimum of sulphites. Whilst not certified, the growers restrict chemical use on the vineyards. Working in this way allows them to produce wines of incredible character but at probably the best price you're likely to find for a wine like this.
