Domaine Rémy Nodin
The oldest estate in Saint-Péray, Domaine Rémy Nodin is based around its fortified farmhouse 'La Beylesse'. Lying at the foot of the limestone escarpment crowned by the medieval ruined castle of Crussol, Rémy and Amandine Nodin are the fourth generation of the family to grow grapes on this site. Former co-operateurs, they brought winemaking back to the Domaine with their first vintage in 2008. They have a small flock of sheep to keep weeds and undergrowth under control plus provide natural fertilizer and have been certified organic since the 2022 vintage. With small parcels of vines in Cornas, Saint-Péray, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage, they make various cuvées of red, white and sparkling white from Syrah, Marsanne and Roussanne. Decanter Rhône expert Matt Walls called it 'an estate to watch.'
