It is impossible to mention Saint-Tropez without thinking of its glamorous image of the 1950s; an image that it maintains thanks to its association with actress and model Brigitte Bardot. But you would be wrong to think that this fashionable resort is nothing more than a VIP destination; Saint-Tropez is also a fishing village, with locals who also grow wine and transmit a unique and colourful atmosphere at any time of the year!
The stops of our Wine Route of Saint-Tropez :
The vineyards of Saint-Tropez border the Mediterranean and it brings a very distinctive flavour to the wine. The region is especially known for its rosé wine, but you can also find wonderful red and white wines! These wines are also produced organically, so be prepared to cross plows and harvests on your journey!
As you travel along the Saint-Tropez wine route, you may find the inspiration of Paul Signac or Henri Matisse...
As its name indicates, Pertuade (meaning "lost place" in Provençal dialect) is a hidden place in the heart of a natural landscape, between sea and hills, on 15 hectares of vineyards between Hyères and St.Tropez. The Pertuade estate is an area surrounded by hills, with an exceptional terroir, where we find the emblematic grape variety of Provence: Grenache, Cinsawhatult, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Tibouren, Ugni Blanc and Rolle. It's only been 5 years since Candice and her family took over the management of the estate; a great opportunity to get together over a glass of wine and share this new passion!
Located in the heart of the Massif des Maures,walking distance from the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, La Garde-Freinet is a small Provençal village surrounded by beautiful protected nature, which invites you to go for walks with an unobstructed view of the Maures.
A great breath of fresh air is guaranteed thanks to dense forests crisscrossed by various species of Mediterranean crops...
The Château Pas-du-Cerf, dating back to the 16th century and named after the deer hunt by King François I, has been a family vineyard for many years. Since 1848, eight generations of the Gualtieri family have succeeded one another in the craft of winemaking. Today, Genevieve and Patrick, with their daughters Aurore and Diane, continue the family project with the aim of producing quality wines.
The vineyard covers nearly two hundred acres of south-facing slopes on schistose soil in the heart of the Massif des Maures. The family is committed to staying close to nature, using organic fertilizers and other methods to produce superior quality grapes.
The whole area is a natural reserve in the heart of Provence and has developed a variation of bled rosé wines (including Pas du Cerf Côtes de Provence Rosé!), made from distinct blends of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Tibouren.
