For 15 years Jérôme Gradassi has worked as a one Michelin star chef in his
own restaurant in Avignon.In this was a very stressful job in the kitchen and
with all the other things demanded of an owner of a small restaurant. He decided
then to return to a more simple life and now he makes wine from the vineyards of
his grand father's, Alphonse Mayard.
Until 2010 the property covers 3,3 hectares mainly with old Grenache vines. The first
vintage from Jérôme Gradassi was 2004. Since 2005 a small amount (around 400
bottles) of white wine has been made. In 2010 Jérôme' brother retired from his
Domaine du Rempart, and since then Jérôme rents two ha

the sign to his brother's caveau. The name Domaine Jérôme Gradassi
has replaced the name Domaine du Remparts.
