Wilson Daniels Partners with Peyrassol of Provence

By April 2, 2021Connecticut, Top News

Wilson Daniels offers a new range of rosés from Peyrassol: Cuvée des Commandeurs Rosé, AOP Côtes de Provence; Château Peyrassol Rosé, AOP Côtes de Provence; and Croix de Peyrassol Rosé, IGP Méditérranée.

Wilson Daniels Wholesale added the wines of Peyrassol to its portfolio. Founded by the Knights Templar in the 13th century, the Commanderie de Peyrassol is rich in historical significance, with the property recording its first harvest in 1256. The family-owned vineyards offer estate-driven, organic and biodynamic wines from producers with a multigenerational effort, located in the foothills on the north side of the Massif des Maures in Provence. Today, using modern winemaking with a respect for the estate’s lineage, the Austruy family continues the revitalization started by Françoise Rigord in the late 1970s, who came to be known as “La Dame de Peyrassol.” Since 2001, when the property was acquired by Philippe Austruy, the family has dedicated extensive resources to improving the natural health of the vineyards and restoring the winery and Commanderie, with the property managed by Philippe’s nephew, Alban Cacaret, along with a team of experts from the vineyard to the cellar producing its Côtes de Provence rosé wines.
