More about this Producer
Frédéric and François Alary took over Domaine de l’Oratoire Saint-Martin in 1984 and work 25 hectares on the Saint Martin hillsides including the oratoire, built in the middle of the vineyard, which gave its name to the estate.
The main part of the domain is situated to the north east of Cairanne 200 metres from the hills of Rasteau in a zone commonly called “la Montagne” in the LES DOUYES et SAINT MARTIN districts. They are steep-sloped and the steeper parts require the usage of a caterpillar. It is a very stony soil with yellow clay on the surface and blue clay deeper and a very high percentage of active limestone.
Since André Alary in 1692, ten generations of grape growers from one to the next for over 300 years have worked on the same vineyard.
