This family estate located in the Costières de Nîmes takes its name from a wild, aromatic herb “La Patience” that can be found throughout the vineyard. After a decade of managing the winemaking at a local cooperative, Christophe Aguilar decided it was time to make his own wine. Today Christophe farms 60-hectares of vines, these were the same soil that his grandfather farmed fifty-years ago, with a deep respect and understanding of it’s terroir.

Great for serving by the glass, for parties, picnics, or for people who only want a glass of wine a day. The conservations will last much longer than bottles once they are opened and it is light to carry.
