The Skalli family originated in 1920s Algeria. At the time, Robert-Elie Skalli selected the finest terrains and planted grape varietals from Southern France – Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, Alicante – in its vineyards. With his son, Francis, they produced grapes and vinified full-bodied, generous wines thanks to very low yields. The family would always maintain a special fondness for wines from the South, the “hot” climates.

Fortant wines offer the finest expression of the South of France terroir, beautifully displayed across three tiers that embrace the area’s diverse and distinctive topography: Mountains Grand Reserve, Hills Reserve, and Coast Select. Initially upsetting French traditions which had always been based on the AOC system, Fortant played a pioneering role in the South of France, having led a revolution to champion the noble varietals and implementing a rigorous viticultural regime and committed vineyard partnerships with more than one hundred growers on more than two thousand acres.

The rose petal pink-hued Fortant Grenache Rosé offers a vivacious nose with notes of redcurrant and thyme. Delicate on the palate, revealing lovely citrus and red berry flavors and boasting a long fresh finish.

Fortant Cabernet Sauvignon is deep purplish red in color and features an intense nose with notes of blueberry and violet. Round and delectable on the palate with lovely flavors of freshly picked black fruit. Boasting relatively young and rather fertile soils, the coastal terroir, with the help of modern viticultural and winemaking techniques, is well-suited to bringing out all the aromas and flavors of each grape variety.
