Château la Martinette symbolises the meeting between the authenticity of one of the oldest estates in Provence and the commitment of a team to the requirement of exceptional know-how and respect for the exceptional Provençal nature of the estate. Since 1620, Château La Martinette has continued to impose its signature in the wine sector in the "Côtes de Provence" appellation thanks to a strategy resolutely focused on excellence. In the Var, between Lorgues and Le Thoronet, 45 hectares of vines in organic conversion are revealed, preserved by 350 hectares of forests, lavender and olive trees and crossed by the Provençal river, the Argens. On a clayey-limestone soil, various grape varieties, including those traditionally found in Provence, thrive such as grenache, cinsault, syrah, rolle, cabernet-sauvignon and even tibouren, a typical Provencal grape variety that has been somewhat forgotten and brought up to date by the estate. Thanks to its 1,400 feet of olive trees, the house produces oil according to the traditional and modern method. The estate also offers honey and operates an orchard and vegetable garden. Concerning the work of the vines, everything is done to make the most of the grapes by opting for hand-picking and sorting and by adopting gravity working. Château La Martinette is distinguished by its rosé wines (from 75 to 80% of the production). However, the Château la Martinette team is committed to developing its range of reds and whites. For the moment, Château La Martinette already offers 9 vintages divided into 3 ranges: "Rollier", for those who love freshness; "Parcellaire", magnifying the terroir; and "Château", the signature of the estate.
Founded in 1620, Château la Martinette is constantly evolving. Its rich past leads it to a present of rebirth for a future of excellence. Having belonged to a lord of the region for centuries, its new owners, in love with Provence, wanted to restore this property to the dimension it had in the 19th century, when there were many employees to carry out different agricultural activities at the same time. Today, in addition to the vines, there are olive trees, lavender and even truffles, all in the greatest respect for nature. To go further in the elaboration of very great wines, a new winery is in the process of being finalised. Currently the success of its wines is such that they have been awarded several prizes, in addition to having long since crossed the French borders. They are present in Russia, Belgium, Hong Kong and Quebec. At the Vins de Provence competition, gold medals were awarded to La Grande Pièce and Le Rollier Rosé. The 2016 Château Rouge was awarded 2 stars and a favourite by the 2019 Guide Hachette. The top-of-the-range white wine "Clos blanc 2014" is the favourite of the reference guide Bettane et Desseauve.
Being a winegrower means demanding to extract the best from your terroir in total respect for nature! It is also through the commitment of the teams in this process of preserving nature and in the passion of their work that we succeed in magnifying the fruit of the earth into exceptional wines.
