In 2010 the Englishman Graham Shore - former investment banker - bought the small property of 12,5 ha of AOP Ventoux. A cellar has been created and the wines have been made and bottled at the domain since 2012. The new project was named Vintur who was the gallic god of light and of the mountains. Since the start in 2012 another Englishman James Wood has managed the domain and made the wines. He has worked in vineyards across France, Germany, South Africa, New Zealand and England.
Starting in 2014 the 30-50-years-old vineyards are during conversion into agriculture biologi
que.
