The Ourea estate is a young estate located on Vacqueras in the Southern Rhone region of France and led by the young and talented Adrien Roustan. The field of Ouréa produces Vacqueras red and white on 9 hectares, as well as gigondas on 4.5 hectares. The Ouréa area has a magnificent terroir in altitude, between 400 and 550m, which allows the wines to keep more freshness than the majority of the wines of the same appellations.
