Domaine Saint Andeol is located on a beautiful hillside overlooking Orange and the Old Town of Cairanne. The terrain is rather steep, the area mostly sunny, and the region cooled by an ever-present, gentle breeze that circulates through the vineyards.
Founded in 1969, the estate is run by Jean-Jacques Beaumet, with an average vine age of 40-50 years.
