Frédéric and Virginie Haut are the epitome of the small grower in the Rhône - their modest house and winery are one of the same. Everything is done with immaculate care and attention to detail by the two of them. They make some of the very best wines in Vacqueyras and their top Cuvée de l’Euse is made in tiny quantities from 50+ year old vines. It is a fabulous wine that will last for at least 15 years.
