AOP Cotes du Rhone Village Signargues

You will not find a village or at least a "hameau" named Sinargues. It's a plateau situated between four communes, Domazan, Estézargues, Rochefort-du-Gard and Saze.

Until 2005 the appellation for these four communes was Cotes du Rhone Village, but since 2005 the name of the wines from selected parcels may add the name Signargues. Only red wines are included in the appallation.

The rules for the use of grapes, le encépagement, is like other Village-appellations: At least 50% Grenache, At least 20% Syrah or Mourvedre and not more than 20% other varieties.

In the four communes you'll find two co-operatives in Estézargues and in Rochefort-du-Gard, Les Vignerons du Castelas
Domazan is a small commune but most of the producers here have for many years had their own cellar and make their own wines to sell in bottles or i tank to a negociant.
