Best Wishes for a wonderful 2019 from Domaine Vintur!
Domaine Vintur wishes you a fabulous NEW YEAR 2019 and brings you some exciting news about our wines!
We had an amazing year in 2018 with the launch of 5 new wines* and awards and recognition from Decanter, eRobertParker, Jancis Robinson, The Best World Sommelier and so much more! Our most highly praised wine have been the white Séléné 2014 - Edition Luna and the White Tradition 2016 and our best sellers were the Red Tradition, our flagship wine Le Gentleman and the White Tradition. Our new sparkling wine received an amazing welcome during our private tasting in Mayfair and at the Wines and Spirits show in London with lots of new fans. The White Sparkling Effervescence Brut Nature is perfect on any bubbly occasion ;)
Two more of our wines were reviewed by eRobertParker.com (see below).
During December, we had record sales in the UK. Our new wines are fully organic and we have designed our new back label with the organic logo and the signature of the wine producer.
In 2019, we are planning to launch 3 new wines which are: White Tradition 2017, Rose 2017 and Red Tradition 2016.
And there is also a lot on our plate, with exciting events coming up or just happening:
- A professional wine show in Bruxelles on the 21st January, at the Crown Plaza Brussels from 10:00 to 17:30,
- A professional wine show in Amsterdam on the 23rd January, at the Rosarium, Europaboulevard from 11:00 to17:00,

The Wine Advocate - eRobertParker.com review:
The "White Tradition 2016"
Score of 90/100
Reviewed by Joe Czerwinski:
A blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, 25% Roussanne and 15% Clairette, the 2016 Ventoux Blanc features subtle notes of pencil shavings married to pineapple fruit. This plump, medium-bodied white shows more concentration than typical for the appellation, with a silky texture and a long finish. It should drink well for the next year or two.
Our "Le Gentleman 2016"
Score of 88/100
Reviewed by Joe Czerwinski:
The 2016 Ventoux le Gentlemen is a blend of 55% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 5% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Marked by scents of celery seed and grilled meat, this full-bodied Ventoux is creamy and supple on the palate. Dark and plummy, savoury and richly textured, it's a fine example of the appellation to enjoy over the next few years.
