In August 2009, Stephen Cronk packed up his family and left the suburbs of south-west London for a small village called Cotignac in the heart of Provence. The Cronks set out on a mission to produce a Provence rosé that would be regarded as one of the best from the region. Today, with a highly experienced winemaking team, Mirabeau has already earned accolades from some of the industry’s toughest critics as the dream materializes.
The Mirabeau winemaking philosophy: “Use grapes from only the best vineyards (in terms of altitude, aspect and soil), to foster an open approach to winemaking and to be dedicated to constantly improving and perfecting every aspect of what we do”.
Their signature wine – Provence Rosé – is created from grapes grown on hillside vineyards just to the south east of Aix-en-Provence. Cultivated in their own special micro-climate in the mountain foothills and harvested only at night between 3am and 10am when it’s cool, these grapes produce a wine that has captured the interest and imagination of critics and press alike, enticed by the Mirabeau magic.
