"Returning home from a particularly brutal and bloody crusade (even by medieval standards)—over a minor religious squabble and against his own countrymen, no less—a young knight took refuge in a chapel on the top of the hill of Hermitage, far from the village and ruckus below. In an effort to break from the past, the knight planted vines, made wine, and always offered some to religious pilgrims making their way over the hill. Word of the hermit and his wine soon spread, attracting followers who helped expand the operation, and the rest is history. 

The lieu-dit La Pierrelle lies at the top of the hill of Hermitage, facing south southwest, with a granite soil and galet stones. The name, Pierrelle, refers to stones (pierre in French), and the stoney nature of the vineyard. The terroir offers a wine of great elegance and restraint."
