The Halos de Jupiter are a collaboration between the southern Rhône’s renowned oenologist Philippe Cambie, and the talented winemaker Michel Gassier. But above all it’s a story of friendship and shared passions: rugby, gastronomy, and Rhone wines, particularly those from Grenache. For Michel and Philippe, Grenache is the king of varietals of the southern Rhône.

Together, they selected the appellations that offer Grenache the potential to reveal the unique and intrinsic qualities of each: Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Côtes du Rhône and Costières de Nîmes. Dedicated to the highest quality, these wines from some of the Valley’s best winegrowers, express their respect for the land and Michel and Philippe’s search for a hedonistic balance.

Reflecting the richness and elegance of Halos de Jupiter, its labels communicate visually the hierarchy of the appellations. Jupiter, the poets say, is the king of gods and men. It is also the largest planet of our solar system and the Halo is its closest ring. Châteauneuf du Pape, the leading appellation of the southern Rhone valley is symbolized by the planet Jupiter. Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Côtes du Rhône and Costières de Nîmes are each represented by the one of four moons of Jupiter discovered by Galileo (Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto).

This wide range of expressions provides wine lovers with either immediate pleasure or with library wines! Halos de Jupiter are a great way to discover and understand Grenache and the exceptional diversity of the terroirs of the Southern Rhone Valley.
