Located in Artigues, between Rians and Esparron, north of the Sainte Victoire mountain and in the heart of Provence Verte, the estate is the most easterly and highest vineyard in the Aix region. Entirely organic since 2014, with natural vinification methods and very little or no sulphite. It covers a total area of 120 ha, including 30 ha of vines. Its location on hillsides in the foothills has generated very varied soils, clay-limestone at the bottom, very stony at the foot of the hill, with some sandy and gravelly areas. The diversity and quality of the grape varieties favour the complexity of the vintages, whether they are PGI or PDO Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence. The vines enjoy a privileged microclimate, late and ventilated by the Mistral, with a slight slope leaning slightly to the south against a mountain that ensures the necessary humidity. Vinification is based on natural fermentation, with very few inputs, strong temperature control, and maturing from barrel to concrete egg depending on the vintage. Currently the estate offers a traditional range, "Les Monges", in the three colours and the "M" range, made from older vines and specific blends.

Our story

For the record, Mongestine, the name of the slope on which the estate is located, on the territory of the municipality of Artigues, comes from the term "Monge" meaning "Monk" in Provençal and Occitan. The land has therefore been inhabited and worked for a long time, yet the estate was completely replanted in 2001, the date of foundation of its current form, after having been practically abandoned for 40 years. Bought in January 2017 by Céline and Harry GOZLAN, it benefits from a brand new impetus with a young and avant-garde team. A total renovation of the cellar and buildings is in progress in order to express the full potential of this terroir both from a wine and tourism point of view. Silence is king in Mongestine style and animals and flora live in harmony among the rows of healthy and vigorous vines.

Other little stories

To be a winegrower in Mongestine is to defend a territory and the values of sharing nature. The Monks understood this a long time ago, and the earth has kept the memory of these centuries of history: this is what we strive to express through our wines...
