Winery Notes:
No longer inspired in their former vocations, Isabelle and Jean-Pierre Daziano decided to follow their shared passion and agreed to take over the 35-acre vineyard and farm of Isabelle’s family. Nestled into a forested plane amid the Massif des Maures mountains, Domaine de la Fouquette sits in the heart of the Côtes de Provence appellation.

In addition to having final say in the cellar, Isabelle assists her parents with Fouquette’s charming auberge. She and her mother tantalize tourists at the 45-seat farmhouse restaurant with traditional Provençal recipes handed down from grand-mère and made only with locally grown or raised products. But Jean-Pierre is determined to put the domaine on the map as a bonne adresse for wine.

With the skillful guidance of consulting oenologist Bruno Tringali, Jean-Pierre has established an environmentally friendly, but labor intensive regimen in the vineyard that includes green harvesting in early summer to limit yields, working the soil without use of chemicals, and harvesting by hand. In the cellar, the philosphy is minimal intervention. The results have been impressive. Fouquette’s Rosée d'Aurore, named for the Daziano's young daughter, is a cuvée blended especially for JW Selections. This wine is comprised of the classic cépages Grenache and Cinsault, and accented with the white variety, Rolle (aka Vermentino).
