Domaine Clavel

Saint-Gervais is a typical little village in the South of France, which is part of the eighteen denominations of the Côtes du Rhône Villages benefitting from a Mediterranean climate and the effects of the Mistral which bring freshness to the wines of Domaine Clavel. Winemaker, Claire Clavel, is a descendant of the original family who have worked the vineyards since 1640. She strives every day to continue the story started by her ancestors many generations ago. Claire's aim is clear:-"I want to make authentic wines that express the local terroirs. I love sharing them with you. That's Wine: sharing, conviviality, gastronomy ..." Claire Clavel
