This is a red wine only appellation and wines must be a blend of at least two grape varieties. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre are the primary grape varieties and these must comprise at least 60% of the blend. Cinsault and Carignan can also be used but not comprise more than 30% of the mixture combined.
Some of the better producers from this area are Domaine le Pas de l'Escalette and Mas de la Serranne.
