Château Revelette in La Revue du Vin de France

La Revue du Vin de France recently featured a detailed profile on Château Revelette followed by a vertical tasting of both the Grand Rouge and Grand Blanc. The article examines the history of the Château and its unique terroir, Peter Fishers international education and career, as well as his winemaking philosophy.    

Nestled in the heart of Provence on the northern slope of the Montagne Mont-Victoire (famously painted by Cézanne), lie the unspoiled and wild lands of Château Revelette. The estate is run by Peter Fischer, who studied oenology at the famous University of California – Davis, and upon completion of the program and a short stint at Buena Vista winery in Sonoma, he moved to the south of France and began his search for suitable land. Since his ownership, Peter has expanded the land under vine to 24 hectares and has planted nine grape varietals, all while respecting the surrounding nature. Peter has a relaxed and straightforward approach to winemaking and despite his Californian education, his resulting wines exude a classical Old World elegance and refinement.
