The Mirabeau story is one of following a dream and the pursuit of a deeply held passion for wine. Founded in 2010, Mirabeau has collected some of the most prestigious wine industry awards and Stephen and Jeany Cronk are delighted that people enjoy their wines all over the world.
After years of dreaming and scheming, Jeany and Stephen made the decision to leave the leafy suburbs of South London behind in exchange for the blue skies and sunshine of Provence. With three young children in tow, they held hands and leapt into the unknown. Armed with big ambitions to make a world-class rosé wine, and willing to challenge established wisdom, they founded Mirabeau. They embarked upon the ultimate family adventure and created one of the world’s most loved brands of rosé.
When Stephen and Jeany first came to Provence, Mirabeau consisted only of Team Cronk, with the occasional outsourced project and a lot of favours called in from good friends. They set themselves the goal of working with people who were excellent in their own field, who could live with a lot of items on their to-do list and deal with the unpredictability that is often in the nature of our business.
In order to produce a quality and style that is consistently excellent year after year, our winemaking philosophy has been to search out and work with some of the best vineyards in Provence. Since our first vintage, we have developed intimate relationships with some of the finest growers in the region.
Over the past ten years, our close relationships with growers have allowed us to have access to over 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres) of prime Côtes de Provence vineyards. And of course, this means we are able to source fantastic fruit from different locations throughout the region.
