Winemaker

Robert Janer

Lying amid vineyards dating from the 13th-century, Clos des Saumanes is an entirely walled vineyard of 25 hecatres, surrounded by Mediterranean garrigue, broom and boxwood. The vineyard is cultivated by Martine and Robert Janer who practice sustainable winegrowing with low, controlled yields. They are driven by the desire to care for this place that they love so much and to grow beautiful grapes from it to produce original, ‘pleasure’ wines.
