Ermitage Notre Dame de ConsolationNotre Dame label

During the Middle Ages, pilgrims on the road to St. Jacques de Compostelle passed alongside our vineyard on foot or on horseback. Exhausted, they often stopped at the nearby ermitage, "Notre Dame de Consolation". Recovering by the fire and enjoying the warm, spicy fruitiness of "Notre Dame" wine, they would surely have found good reason to abandon their pilgrimage.
