Story

CLOVIS WINES – CHÂTEAU SIMIAN

Clovis Wines is a collaboration between T Edward and some of the best small producers in France.

Château Simian is a 5th generation estate located in the Southern Rhône at the bottom of Massif d’Uchaux (5km north of Orange). Today the Serguier family runs 26 hectares: 6 ha in Châteauneuf du Pape, 11 ha in Côtes du Rhône and 9 ha classified “Vin de France”.
Jean-Pierre Serguier and his son Florian are constantly striving for the highest levels of quality by pursuing a perfect harmony between their vines and the encompassing ecosystem. Château Simian began practicing biodynamic farming in 2008 and every step since then has been performed according to the natural rhythm and cosmic influences. Great care is brought to the vineyard in order to foster the relationship between the plant and its environment. Château Simian is trying to be as non-interventional as possible, using low amounts of sulfur totaling 22mg at bottling, and outside of that refraining from using chemicals in the vineyards and no other additions in the cellar.
