Domain: Tunnel

Originally from a different valley to the Rhône, Stéphane Robert chose to found his own domain on the land where he learnt everything. Talent and zeal have been the keys to his success. His vineyard, cultivated with minimum intervention, is now among the best of the Cornas and Saint-Péray appellations. His cuvées are lauded for their finesse, suppleness and the purity of their fruit.

Stéphane Robert and his wife Sandrine established their property in 1994. It takes its name from the stone tunnel running beneath the land. The 9-hectare vineyard spans three appellations: Saint Péray, Saint Joseph and Cornas. Stéphane has made a name for himself in the region, and makes wines that are ideal for ageing. The couple practices sustainable viticulture, working all their land manually or with a horse where the terrain permits this. The steepest plots are ploughed with the help of a winch. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted in situ.

What the guides say...

  • La Revue du vin de France
« Stéphane Robert manages his domain with ardour and creates wines that are modern and precise, asserting themselves as references at the heart of the Saint-Péray and Cornas appellations. These cuvées renew the sometimes rustic style of these two little appellations. Stéphane brings a touch of refinement to his opaque Syrah wines »
