“Les Indigènes” is a field blend produced from a single vineyard of less than a hectare that was planted around 200 years ago and retains pre-phylloxera vines. As was the custom “back in the day” the vineyard was co-planted with a wide variety of grape types both white and red, many of which are nearly forgotten, including Carignan, Cinsault, Clairette, Grenache, Grenache Blanc. Grenache Gris, Macabeu, Malvasia, Muscat a Petits Grains, Ugni Blanc, Aramon, Terret, and Jacquet. All varieties are co-fermented using indigenous yeasts in old oak foudres and without temperature control. No additional sulfur added to this wine.

The vineyard itself sits high above the town of Bedarieux, only accessible by a narrow lane winding up from the town to the top of the hill. The vineyard is hidden from the eye because it is both walled and shielded by fruit trees. One has to pass through an entrance gate and then through a doorway framed by a stone arch. A true “secret garden”.
