In addition to working with his family’s estate, Paillère and Pied-Gû, Bertrand Stehelin has also been producing and bottling wine under his own label since 2004. Stehelin farms about 3 hectares in Gigondas and 1.3 hectares in Sablet. His vines in Gigondas are planted between 100 and 300 meters above sea level and are all in the range of 70-90 years old. His vines in nearby Sablet are a bit younger, but the Grenache, which comprises most of the blend, comes from 40 to 60 year old vines planted on gently sloped, sandy soils. The Gigondas ages for two years in foudre, and the Cotes du Rhone Villages ‘Sablet’ spends 11 months in concrete.
