Portes de Bonpas

Origins of the cuvée

Located near Avignon, at the heart of the Rhone Valley, the fortified stronghold of Bonpas, from the French “Bon passage”, has watched over the safe crossing of the Durance River along the historic route that once linked Rome with Avignon. The estate marks the gateway to the southern Côtes-du-Rhône appellations and opens its gates to the discovery of the region’s terroirs. Its sophisticated, elegant wines embody the terroirs and varietals of this famous region through their power and fruitiness.


Old alluvial deposits of round and flat stones, calcareous marl and limestone soil.

Grape varietals

Grenache blanc.

Vinification and maturing

Nose: Expressive of fresh summer fruits (apricot, peach) with exotic mango notes. It then opens up to flavours of citrus fruit and white flowers (acacia, hawthorn).
