About this wine

After a rigorous sorting, the grapes to produce Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Tradition Red” Château Fortia were destemmed and fermentation took place in a combination of temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and concrete tanks. Vinification lasted for approximately five weeks. After racking, Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Tradition Red” Château Fortia was aged in old French oak for 18 to 24 months, imparting subtle oak characteristics.Château Fortia recently completed improvements in the vineyard, including the replanting of vines in the correct plots of land to suit the grape variety. The distinct terroir here consists of rounded quartzite stones from the Villafranchian period. These stones absorb heat during the day then radiate it at night, ensuring full grape maturity is reached.
Château Fortia is a symbolic estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, both for its location and its roots that are closely linked to that of its appellation. In 1929 due to the efforts of Baron Pierre Leroy, Châteauneuf du Pape became the first appellation with a set of winemaking regulations. Today his descendants still continue the proud family tradition.
