The Beauvence estate was born from a passion for an exceptional terroir, dominated by a 400-year-old holm oak. It flourishes in the heart of the Domaine. This tree is the symbol of a rich and still preserved land in the Luberon Regional Park in Provence.
The Beauvence estate covers 30 hectares, 10 of which are vineyards. Where? Where? Beaumont de Pertuis is a small village perched on a rocky promontory which is itself dominated by its 11th century church, not far from Aix en Provence. The 300 days of sunshine per year allow our 10 hectares of vines, and our 1400 olive trees to flourish in the best conditions. In our region, grapes and olives soak up the heat during the day and enjoy the freshness at night.
The soil, on gently sloping hills, is clay-limestone, perfect conditions for draining water and retaining trace elements. It is no coincidence that before us, the Romans, the Phocaeans and even the Greeks of Rhodes had already chosen this region of Pertuis to cultivate vines and olive trees.
We do everything possible to maintain the balance of our field. Chemicals are banned from our daily lives and cultural practices. Like our ancestors, we let micro fauna like earthworms do their work. We use a chosen grass cover and leave the wood from the pruning of vines and olive trees on the ground in Spring. In our country, even the holm oak and pine forests surrounding the plots are useful because they help us to maintain and develop biodiversity in order to obtain HVE certification in the very near future. Tasting our wines and olive oils means feeling the warmth of the Mediterranean and the scents of rosemary and wild thyme. Over the years we have forged links with men and women who work with the same high standards. Our common point is to focus on quality, taste and authenticity. The production of our estate is limited, the vinification is done by the plot, the bottles are numbered. Buying the wine and oil from Domaine Beauvence means sharing our philosophy and a piece of our terroir.
Making a good wine (and a good olive oil) is essentially done for me in the fields, whether for the vines or the olive trees; and I am not only talking about the organic aspect but about a whole, a general eco system that we create, and we try to constantly improve: permanent grassing, preservation of trees in the middle of the plot, bird nest box, setting up hives within the estate.... more than 1000 small details! it is a permanent reflection and action and for us, it is what gives us good grapes and helps us to make good wines.
