A VINEYARD THAT RESPECTS THE GENTLE PACE OF NATURE
The Château Saint Roux vineyard spans 74 acres around the village of Le Cannet des Maures and comprises a clay and chalk soil, rich in iron that lends the earth its characteristic orange and vermilion hues. The domain itself dates back to the 15th century.
In fact, the color of the soil was at the origin of the name Saint Roux (Saint Russet). Iron is an essential nutrient and acts as a catalyst for the growth of richly-aromatic grapes - a specificity that produces punchy wines and truly extraordinary reds. Planted in a windy corridor, the vines are naturally protected from disease and are therefore ideally suited to organic farming. Currently under conversion, the first official organic harvest is scheduled for 2017/2018.
THE EPITOME OF AUTHENTICITY
The cellar will be reopening in summer 2018 – Saint Roux is committed to flying the flag of tradition, terroir and ecology alike. The vineyard is an invitation to slow down and relish the moment, encouraging visitors to stroll peacefully in the vines and smell the roses… The cellar will be offering a range of organic produce supplied by local producers. More than just a vineyard, Château Saint Roux is destined to become a genuine working farm, home to around 50 goats.
