Teamwork: Phillippe Cambie and Gilles Ferrand
In 2004 Philippe Cambie purchased a parcel of 1,5 ha. at Plan de Dieu with old vines. The yield from here has since vintage 2006 vinified at Domaine des Escaravailles in Roaix by Cambie's friend from the years at the wine university in Montpellier, Gilles Ferrand. After the harvest 2008 Cambie added a neighbouring parcel of 3 ha also with old vines.
The name Calendal comes from a provencal poem by Frederik Mistral. A fisherman Calendal is deeply in love with the beautiful EstÚrelle. Just like the two friends' love for the soil of Provence and its fruits - the wines.
