MUSCAT OF VENTOUX

This is a table grape, of the black Muscat variety. It has a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin). It is grown only on our soil, where it gets an ideal amount of sunshine for optimum ripeness and an incomparable sweet and musky flavour.

The Muscat of Ventoux is grown on sunny slopes throughout the year by farmers whose expertise and commitment to quality are well established. This table grape can only be handpicked as it must be carefully cut off for impeccable presentation. You will spot pickers’ umbrellas in vineyards as early as late August. It is then, in the hot summer sun, that the early varieties are first harvested.

The vertically or ’lyre’ trellised vines are higher than wine grapes vines. The ’lyre’ culture uses iron rods linked into a V shape. It allows better air circulation between clusters, maximum sunlight and defence against various diseases with a more even ripening.

The Muscat of Ventoux is a tonic fruit, as it provides readily available energy in the form of sugars. It also helps eliminate toxins due to its high water and potassium content. It has a high polyphenol content and a significant amount of B vitamins.

You can sample this variety of table grapes grown exclusively in the Ventoux area in September or October: the black Muscat AOC Muscat du Ventoux is one of the few fruits with a sign of European quality (PDO).
