There are also Mourvèdre grapes, as well as other secondary grape varieties such as the Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise.

Beaumes de Venise's Vin Doux Naturel Muscat

The sandy clay soil produced from the erosion of ‘safre’, a soft rock from the Miocene Period (15 million years) is the preferred area for Muscat, giving it its subtlety.

Respecting strict production conditions (cultivation methods, yield, natural sugar content, etc.) gives Muscat its exceptional qualities.

The Beaumes de Venise Muscat, a Vin Doux Naturel, starts out like any wine, but its fermentation and the transformation of sugars into alcohol are stopped by adding around 10% pure alcohol (this process is known as mutage). This allows some of the sweetness, and especially the fruitiness, of the grapes to be retained.
