Cave des Ponts - Riddes

About the winery

Des Ponts cellar was created in 1989. Its name comes from the meaning of “riddes” in Latin, which is “fording”. Christophe Laurenti is fortunate to be the winegrower and winemaker, having taken over the estate from his father.

The vineyard is located in the Riddes and Leytron municipality. The current area is 3 hectares, comprising 14 grape varieties.

Cultivated exclusively on his land and produced in his own cellar, his products are the result of relentless demand. His love for his vines and the moderate size of his estate give rise to personalised products with a unique character.
