Domaine Père Caboche - Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Southern Rhone
For centuries, Jean-Pierre Boisson’s ancestors have been both wine growers and blacksmiths. The family’s nickname “Caboche” derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails, by which the estate is still known. Jean-Pierre is the former long-serving mayor of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Today, he runs Domaine Père Caboche with his daughter Emile.
Jean-Pierre and Emile are proud to follow a traditional approach to winemaking that respects the environment and allows for the vines to grow naturally.
