Domaine le Sang des Cailloux is a winery near Vacqueyras and Sarrians in the southern Rhône Valley. The estate produces mainly wines in the appellation Vacqueyras. It is run by Serge Ferigoule, always sporting an impressive moustache.

The vineyards cover some 17 hectares of Vacqueyras, planted with grenache, syrah, mourvèdre and cinsault grapes. The vineyards are farmed organically and are on the way to becoming biodynamic. The winery is very spacious, filled with tanks in raw concrete. The wines are not filtered or clarified. Some aging is done in oak barrels.

The main red wine produced at Domaine le Sang de Cailloux is a Vacqueyras. The name, confusingly, changes every year, or rather, the name rotates between Cuvée Floureto, Cuvée Doucinello and Cuvée Azalais – for no other reason than that those are the names of Serge Ferigoule’s three daughters. Domaine le Sang des Cailloux also makes a prestige cuvee called Cuvee de Lopy from old vines and a Cuvee Oumage.
