Yves Cuilleron’s estate was founded by his grandfather in 1920. Yves has a very rigorous approach to winemaking and since he took over the estate in 1987 has personally monitored every stage of the production. The estate now includes vines in some of the most prestigious appellations of the Rhône Valley such as Cornas, Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and St Joseph. ‘Yves Cuilleron is a superstar of the Northern Rhône’. High density plantings, handpicked, partially destemmed and made to age!

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
