In the heart of the Var region, located at the foothill of the Rocher de Roquebrune, an estate was born. On the soils of the estate where the hill turned into Provençal terraces the vines have grown for five years. Cabernet, Sauvignon, Syrah, Mourvèdre vines for the red wine, and Viognier vines for the white wine. According to the decision of the new owner, no rosé wine is produced on this estate.Planted at a higher density than the average in Provence, the vines compete against each other with one objective: the quality of the grapes.Although, the vines grow on IGP soils (Vin de pays) and not on AOP soils, we are still talking about great wines here!Great wines means a completely controlled vinification in a totally renovated cellar. In a old sheepfold in stone and wood, narrow and tall shiny vats stand out. An organ in a cathedral. The vats are organized on several floors, some real metallic masterpiece.To orchestrate this oenological symphony, everything is done upstairs. The grapes harvested by hand are treated by gravity with the greatest respect. Above the steel vats, the huge truncated wooden vats, handmade by a cask-maker, tower over this winery.More confidential, the Burgundian barrels in French oak rest in a vaulted cellar and also allow wine-making and maturing in a monastic tranquility.If the wine-growing project is almost achieved now, the works are not over yet.In 2011, after planting over 3,000 olive trees of diverse varieties (Picholine, Cayon, Aglandau, Ribiers, Bouteillan et Frantoio) the first drops of olive oil will now have to be extracted from this olive grove. A project for the construction of a mill is currently being studied and should spring up from the ground shortly. To be continued...
