Det er en ganske interessant ide at præsentere nogle af de 189 producenter, der leverer druer til kooperativet. Foto fra domænets ny website.
Nogle af medlemmerne leverer druer fra AOC Chateauneuf du Pape, men i kooperativets nærområde vil en større del af producenter i Orange og Courthezon
levere druer fra Cotes du Rhone Village, Cotes du Rhone eller IGP. Nogle leverer også druer fra f.eks. Vacqueyras, Gigondas eller andre appellationer.
