This has become an iconic estate which over the years has shown just how great southern Rhônes can be. Without doubt it is with these wines in mind that the cru Rasteau was created around ten years ago.
La Soumade is the story of one man, André Roméro, a passionate wine lover who displays some of the great bottles he's drunk over many years. A starting point for him was Châteauneuf-du-Pape but also the northern Rhône and he has always sought to balance power with finesse.
His base is Rasteau but he also has vines in Gigondas, He is now aided by his son Frédéric. His other passion, almost equally strong is the Marseille Football Club!
