About "Moon, The Lunar" Collection

The Lunar collection is a blend of Grenache, Caladoc and Cinsault, whose vines grow on tree different parcels, and which are so harvested at three different nights, hence the three moons. The three bottles contain the same blend. The vines grow on an alluvial clay-limestone soil, in the valley.

During the harvest time in September, the outside temperature can rise up to 35°C in Provence and the rose winemaking process happens at low temperature. By harvesting at night, we can naturally control the temperature from the harvest to the winemaking and seize all the aromas of the grape.

 

About Château d’Astros

The Château d’Astros is located in the heart of Provence. The vineyard has produced wine since the 12th century. Originally planted by the knights Templars, the vines were purchased by the vineyard in 1802. On the hillsides of the Vieux Château d’Astros, the limestone and stony soil provides a fertile ground for powerful tasty grapes. Fifty years ago, the current owner Bernard Maurel planted new vines and grew the first grapes to produce the first AOP Cotes de Provence Rose.
