A family project embodied by Sophie Le Clercq, a strong and engaging personality, who has been working at Les Davids for over 20 years, with a young and dedicated team. The vineyard is located at an altitude of 580 metres, with some plots reaching over 700 metres, in a protected valley on the edge of the Ventoux, a wild region whose diversity of soils makes the terroir particularly rich. The estate is voluntarily run on a mixed organic farming system, which guarantees the preservation of biodiversity. Some forty hectares are cultivated, including 26 hectares of vines, orchards, truffle fields, olive trees, vegetables and cereals. In addition to the cultivated land, the landscape is made up of forest, scrubland, hedges with local species and hillside reservoirs.
