Attraction details
Owner description: The origin of the vineyards of Beaumes-de-Venise is very old; the history of its wines can be traced back to 600 years before Christ, when a Greek community moved into the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail. The first vines from the Domaine de Coyeux date back to the 1950s. The estate was taken over in 2013 by Hugues de Feraudy, whose family was already established in Vaucluse in the tenth century. Located on the southern side of the Dentelles de Montmirail, the Domaine de Coyeux is comprised of one continuous area of 112 hectares. - The estate combines: ✓ Very well-known Trias soil types characterized by pores filled with clay which capture the winter water from the soil that when released in the summer will nourish the root system of the vines, thus leaving grape berries that thirst for the sun. ✓ Planted in an ideal location, the mountains of Coyeux (altitude 300m) provide air currents which bring freshness in the summer, contributing to healthy grapes and delicate aromatic wines. ✓ A climate dominated by the famous mistral winds. Coming from the north, this wind occurs only a few hours after a rainfall, leaving time for the vines to absorb its benefits while minimizing the risks of the proliferation of parasites by rapidly drying the foliage. The landscapes of Domaine de Coyeux are exceptional; the rocky blades of the Dentelles de Montmirail are within sight just a few hundred meters away. Mont Ventoux, snowy in winter, gives the impression of being at your fingertips. Calm reigns around the mountains of Coyeux. The destiny of the estate is to be at the top. In the past, its Muscat was classified> by Robert Parker.

My wife and I stopped by on our Cotes du Rhone driving tour because of Rick Steves' recommendation (France 2013).

The wines were delicious. The hostess was very friendly and did a fantastic job of telling us about the wines in English.

I would recommend this vineyard if you're in the area.

My husband and I are both really enjoy wine. We both enjoy sampling wines along our travels. The drive up to this vineyard is very scenic. They have many acres of vines.

As far as wine tasting goes, they only had three wines that we could sample, one red and two whites. One of their popular red wines was not available for tasting because it was still aging (2008).

We tried to make conversation with the lady at the counter, but she was not very interested in talking about the vineyard.

In order to be polite, we did purchase two bottles of wine, but they are certainly not our favorite of the wines we purchased.

I would not recommend stopping at this vineyard. Domaine de Mourchon Winery was much friendlier, better wines and better service. We really learned about the region and its wine making here!

We stumbled across Domaine de Coyeux while driving north from Carpentras en route to Gigondas. The winery is situated atop rolling hills with a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside and the imposing Dentelles de Montmirail. The winery is reached directly from route D90 (there is decent signage) with the driveway climbing steeply to a modest main house with a small tasting room.

The winery produces only a handful of wines - a cru Gigondas and a cru Beaumes de Venise (both red) together with two whites, a Muscat de Beaumes de Venise and a simpler Muscat Vin de Pays de Mediterranee. We enjoyed the cru Gigondas, a lighter variant of the region's famous red wine and preferred the simpler Muscat (we purchased bottles of both to bring home).

Even if you're not a wine fan it's worth driving up to the winery just to take in the gorgeous views. When we visited we were the only people there and the individual hosting the tasting (which is free) spoke English.
