Le Club

The Domaine Vallet is a property of 11.5 hectares located in Serrières at the edge of the Ardèche in the Northern Rhône. They produce red and white Saint-Joseph and Condrieu.

These wines are easy to drink, enjoyable in their youth, and they reach maturity after 4 to 6 years.

Member of a cooperative until 1989, Louis Vallet pulled out and created the estate in 1990. His son Anthony joined him ten years later, and this was the beginning of a new adventure. Today Domaine Vallet is considered the new rising star of these appellations.
