from Paris Wine Girl | Published 5/14/2021

In this episode, I am going to introduce you Elisabeth Saladin in the Cote des Rhone appellation of Saint Andeol. She produces wine with her sister, Marie-Laurence at their family's estate, Domaine Saladin. Both are part  part of the Femmes Vignes Rhone association.Domaine Saladin is located in Saint Marcel d´Ardèche, a Provencal village in the southern Côtes du Rhône, halfway between Montélimar and Avignon, on the right bank of the Rhône.An estate that offers the particularity of having always been cultivated, harvested and vinified organically.They they created their first vintage in 2003, while they were still students. They took over from their father who was recovering from an illness. Right up until the present day, the Saladin family has kept its traditions alive, working harmoniously together, passing along its ‘know-how’ from fathers to sons and father to daughters.This episode comes in conjunction with a project I produced for the Napa Valley Wine Academy and is centered around exploring some of the smaller lesser known village appellations of the Southern Rhone.  Paris Wine Girl @pariswinegirlLinkedIn: Emily LesterDomaine Saladin Website: Vignes Rhone: Valley Wine Academy @napavalleywineacademySupport the show (
