In 1931 an Italian Francis Usseglio left Italy and went to Chateauneuf du Pape in France. Here he got a job at some winegrowers. After the war he got his own property - in 1948. He had two sons Pierre and Raymond. Pierre Usseglio got his father's property and Raymond established another estate Domaine Raymond Usseglio. Since vintage 2004 it's the 3th generation Stephane who has been in charge.

Chateauneuf du Pape les Apotres
2016:"The cuvée name, « Les Apôtres » relates to the different varietals allowed in the appellation Châteauneuf du Pape, originating from collection parcels of very old vines with many different varietals within the same parcel (some are centenaries). Grapes have been hand selected among sandy and pebbles parcels on specific vines offering exceptional sanitary state and excellent ripeness. Winemaking : - Manual destemming “berry by berry” of each grape - Berries have been carefully transferred into some amphoras - 4 month skin contact in amphora without any addition of sulfites or use of cold; this allowed a soft diffusion of tannins and flavor compounds - Skins have been taken off the amphoras after 4 months and the wines was left in the amphora 18 more months - Very little so2 at bottling only"
