who grows the grapes? who makes the wines?
In the winery, Dominique leads much of the production, but Genevieve will touch almost every bottle that they produce, whether it be on the bottling line, as it is labelled, or preparing orders to ship. Their son Nicolas and his wife Mathilde are close by and contribute to the management of the estate as well. The picture here of the blushing bride and that lovely tractor provides a fun look at their marriage and life on this small farm.
what wines do they make?
The Côtes du Rhône “Villages” is broader and more intense. Older vines and higher altitudes mean that the fruit is more refined and layered. Finally, the Pons make a wonderful rose that typifies Roses from this area – clean, bright, low alcohol, and inexpensive.

why is it a Candid Wine? why might you try a bottle?
If you love to drink wine on Wednesdays or at picnics they way we do, without pretense, The Pons’ Côtes du Rhône might be for you too. Try it with most anything simply done off the grill – from pork to mushrooms, or shrimp to sweet potatoes.
