Producing wines since Roman times, today the estate is owned by the Roozen family, who are continually striving to produce delicious wine, whilst protecting their environment.

Val Joanis is a beautiful estate of 400 hectares with stunning gardens and views over the Lubéron.

The 120 hectares of vineyard spread over the hills at altitudes ranging from 280m to 450m, the site of the famous plot ‘Les Griottes’. The vineyards also benefit from a sunny exposure and enjoy a particularly favourable microclimate with late ripening giving the wines freshness and balance.

Wine Spectator Tasting Note:

Light peach and white cherry notes are backed by a stony hint on the finish. Flirts with an off-dry accent at the very end, leaving a flattering impression. Syrah, Vermentino and Grenache. Drink now. 3,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. 87 Points, James Molesworth, Web 2019

Wine Enthusiast Tasting Note

There’s just a tinge of pink on this pale, slightly frail rosé. Light bodied and mineral, it seems remarkably restrained amidst a sea of buoyantly fruity, sometimes confected wines. Red-cherry and raspberry flavors are crisply concentrated on the palate. Enjoy this thirst-quenching dry wine now. 89 Points – Anna Lee C IIjma, July 2019

Food Pairing

Beautiful aperitif. It pairs well with asparagus, artichokes, chicken, crab cakes and seafood. Also a great accompaniment to Provencal food, anchovies, grilled sardines and tapenade.
