About St Cosme
Set amid the rolling hills of Gigondas, in the heart of the idyllic Rhône Valley, lies the picturesque St Cosme winery. Founded as far back as 1416, this iconic establishment has been owned by the illustrious Barruol family for over five centuries, making it an enduring emblem of French viticulture.
The renowned St Cosme vineyards occupy a sprawling 37 acres where the soil is predominantly clay and limestone, ideal for producing the region's trademark reds. St Cosme winery is renowned for its exemplary range of wines, most notably Gigondas red, Côte Rôtie, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
