ABOUT CHÂTEAU COURAC
In the 17th century, the Arnaud family settled in Tresques, on the right bank of the Rhone Valley, in the department of Gard. They quickly rose to the title of winemaker after the acquisition of a vineyard producing Côtes du Rhône. The vineyard of the Arnaud family is today composed of 120 ha producing mainly Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Rhône Villages Laudun.
ABOUT COTES DU RHONE
Côtes du Rhône is a region wide appellation within the Rhône Valley in eastern France. It applies to red, rosé and white wines, and includes more than 170 villages. The zone follows the course of the Rhône river southwards for 125 miles from Saint-Cyr-sur-le-Rhône to Avignon. A small proportion of the appellation's wines are white. However the classic Côtes du Rhône wine is a fruity, middleweight red blend based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
