Since 1962, the Mourre family has been producing wines in Vacqueyras, Rhône valley, SE of France. With a training of geologist, Jean-Louis Mourre took over the estate in 1995. He considers the sedimentary soils, the flora, the climate and the wine making in order to make a consistent quality each vintage. Viticulture as we know it arrived in Southern France with the Greeks in the 4th century BC. But it was the Romans who really established the vineyards and reputation of the area using the Rhône as their highway through France.
