Domaine la Consonniere's origins begin around 1890 when François Ferulla acquired the first plots of Châteauneuf-du-Pape: the beginnings of a long line of winegrowers. Eventually, François' son, then grandson, each took over the property, extending the estate over 8 hectares. They produced wine of character and power, endowed with all the richness and strength their soils would allow. Yet few, if any, bottles were sold commercially. Instead, the wine was sold off to other Rhône Valley wineries with just a small portion of bottles reserved for friends and family under the name "Domaine de la Cabane". In 2009, Sébastien Cuscusa, great-great-grandson of François Ferulla, took over as head of the family estate after having trained in winemaking at many prestigious properties in the appellation.He renamed the estate Domaine la Consonnière after one of the oldest plots on the property. Sébastien combined the work ethic of his elders with his know-how and his passion in the pursuit of quality to build the estate to where it is today. The estate now extends over 7.5 hectares in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation and 5 hectares in the Lirac appellation. Sébastien has incorporated high-performance technical installations, hired experienced and competent staff and collaborated with oenologist Philippe Cambie, bringing together excellent conditions for the production of outstanding wine that speak to his terroir and its region.

Domaine la Consonniere's Châteauneuf-du-Pape rouge is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre. This wine sit a deep, dark red in the glass, which when swirled, emits rich aromas of raspberry and strawberry preserves with hints of cacao and licorice. The palate is elegant and luscious: full of those dark red berry fruit flavors which envelop an underlying mixture of earth, herbs and white pepper spice. Pair with dishes that match this wine's undeniable richness: short ribs with caramelized root vegetables, wild boar stew or sirloin smothered in a thick mushroom gravy.
