Organically farmed and certified by EcoCert, Domaine Berthet Rayne is located in the heart of the Chateauneuf-fu-Pape appellation. We met the 30 some year old Laure Berthet-Rayne this year and immediately knew she was a young woman with great ambition. Representing the 5th generation and following her grandfather and father's foot steps, Laure and her husband Martial Capeau is 100% hands on at the estate's 26 hectares of vineyards. The estate is situated on the diluvium alpine soil, more specifically on the left side of the Rhone between Orange and Avignon in the renown “terroirs” of Coudoulet and Chapouin. Domaine Berthet-Rayne wines draw their strength and richness from stone covered clayey-chalky soils.
