FRANCE / RHÔNE VALLEY
The Farjon family has deep roots in the Southern Rhône Valley, where they have been making wine for 8 generations. Originally from Marseilles, the family escaped the Black Plague and established their own hamlet, called Uchaux les Farjon, in the Vaucluse area in the 1700s. Robert Farjon named their winery Domaine de Dionysos in 1974 in honor of the Greek god of wine. André Farjon found great success in France and abroad, with many of their wines now available in the US, and his son Benjamin helped transition the Domaine to biodynamics. André Farjon has recently started sourcing grapes from his favorite Rhône Valley vineyards to create wines under his own name.
The goal of André Farjon’s project of bottling wines from various appellations of the Southern Rhône Valley under his own name is to expand beyond the geographical limitations of the Domaine de Dionysos and introduce the wider world to his favorites from this corner of the world that he knows so well. Among these, you will find Plan de Dieu, Vinsobres, Ventoux, Côtes du Rhône, Cairanne, just to name a few!
