Château Revelette Red 2015

Nestled in the heart of Provence on the northern slope of the Montagne Mont-Victoire (famously painted by Cézanne), lie the unspoiled and wild lands of Chateau Revelette. The estate is run by Peter Fischer, who studied enology at the famous University of California – Davis, and upon completion of the program and a short stint at Buena Vista winery in Sonoma, he moved to the south of France and began his search for suitable land. Since his ownership, Peter has expanded the land under vine to 24 hectares and has planted nine grape varietals, all while respecting the surrounding nature.

Peter has a relaxed and straightforward approach to winemaking and despite his Californian education, his resulting wines exude a classical Old World elegance and refinement.
