Domaine Martinelle

Domaine La Martinelle, spearheaded by the tenacious German born winemaker, Corinna Faravel, is made up of an almost forgotten cluster of small vineyards, nestled on the steep slopes behind the Dentelles de Montmirail. Corinna purchased the land back in 2001 before building a winery from scratch: she was determined and on a self-proclaimed one women wine making mission. As Corinna herself says ‘Ventoux is not as famous as its neighbours, but it has incredible potential – and I decided it was up to me to show what a winemaker could do here!’ Her vineyards are situated high up on the Bramadou lieu-dit in Beaumes de Venise, which is famed for its Triassic rusty/orange soils and on the Martinelle lieu-dit in Ventoux, which is more limestone and clay. At harvest time all the grapes are selected and picked by hand. The winemaking process is as gentle as possible; the grapes being fed into the cement vats via gravity. There is no fancy technology employed here, Corinna simply relies upon her instinct and experience. Her wines are sumptuous and beautifully crafted.
