Our wines

The vineyards of Domaine de Marotte are located on the southern slopes of Mont Ventoux, close to the famous wine villages of Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaumes-de-Venise. Our wines are called ‘AOP’ Ventoux (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) and Vin de Pays de Méditerranée. From our Domaine we overlook the Dentelles de Montmirail and the majestic Mont Ventoux. Our company building – the chai – is located in the middle of our vineyards. In the background you can see the 1912 meter high Mont Ventoux. The name means: mountain with wind from all directions.

White

Our white wines are based upon the following types of wine grapes: Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette and Vermentino. These wines are fresh and distinguish themselves with the aromas of pear, peach, citrus, melon, narcissus, and Apple blossom. The tastes are well combined and, have generate nice mouthfeel. Although we advise you to drink our white wines young, they can develop surprisingly well.

Rosé

We make our rosés of the Cinsault, Grenache noir and Mourvèdre varieties. The grapes go directly into a pneumatic press, after which we ferment the juice at a low temperature. This allows you to taste the aromas of strawberries, raspberries, currants, vineyard peach and melon. Our fresh rosés not only taste delicious but also accompany BBQ meals and highly seasoned dishes.

Red

For our red and rosé wines, we use five types of wine grape: Grenachenoir, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Syrah en Cinsault. Using these we can create the various assemblages. These wines distinguish themselves with concentrated aromas of dark fruit such as cherry, blackberries and blueberries, accompanied by the herbs laurel, pepper and Herbs de Provence. By the wines that have ripened in the barrel, the ‘wood’ taste is nicely in balance with the other aromas. Without dominating the ‘wood’ taste gives these wines an own character and slightly sturdier tannin. As result these wines can be kept up until 6 years, for those not ripened in the barrel it is advised 4 to 6 years.

Wines selected by Daan & Elvire: Sélection M

Our Sélection M consists of wines from colleagues from whom we believe make beautiful wines. They are all wines with an excellent price-quality ratio. The colleagues we work with treat their grape plants at with as little products as possible. This is called ‘la lutte raisonée’. Some of them even work organically and others are in the middle of the conversion process. We select the wines in the caves and together with our colleagues we compose the tastiest assemblies. After this, these wines go directly to the bottler. Because there is no third party, we guarantee the best quality.

The harvest season on Domaine de Marotte

We planted 28 hectares on our 32-hectare Domaine. In order to make the most beautiful wines, we harvest almost all our grapes manually. This is possible because we grow different varieties that are not ripe at the same time.

We normally harvest from the first weekend of September but the exact start of course depends on the weather in the summer. The harvest usually takes around 4 to 5 weeks.

Interested

Who are we looking for?

We prefer picking with sporty, flexible and enthusiastic people who can help at least 1 week – preferably longer.

We work with an average crew of 20 people. Of these, 16 pick, transport 2 empty crates and remove full crates, and 2 process the grapes in the cave. So everything revolves around teamwork.

We have a holiday home (gite) with a large courtyard where we always eat together. As a picker you sleep in your own tent on the lawn next to the gîte. There are of course sufficient sanitary facilities and there is a communal kitchen with all the necessary facilities. Because of the generally beautiful weather we live mainly outside.

We take care of the groceries and the food but the dishes are done together. We also clean sanitary facilities, for example, together with a cleaning schedule. In your free time you can use the washing machine and the spacious swimming pool.

What  should you take into account?

  • Unusual work for your back. The first 3 days are tough but then it goes easier.
  • Your clothes become irreparably dirty and you can best wear sturdy work shoes.
  • The weather is usually nice but sometimes it rains here. So take both circumstances clothing, including a rain suit.
  • Grape picking is hard work but it is a special and unforgettable experience.
