The know-how and experience of Château de Saint Martin are at work to offer a cuvée that links history and the future by respecting sustainable agriculture and the creation of healthy ecosystems. The label, its green tone and recycled paper are directly linked to nature and the agroecologyapplied in the vineyard since always.
The undeniable footprint symbolises:
- the 11th generation of this family adventure, represented by Adeline de Barry
- plants are given priority over everything else.
This wine offers all the freshness and vivacity of a contemporary Rosé.
Château de Saint-Martin is a lovely 100-hectare estate with 50 hectares of vineyards. History is prevalent there.
Back in the 1st century BC, the Romans – pioneers of winegrowing in Gaul – founded one of the very first wine-growing estates in France.
From the 10th to the 18th century, the Lérins monks turned it into a wine-growing priory, and a superb underground cellar, built in the 12th and 16th centuries, still in use today.
Since 1740, the same family of French nobility has handed the Château down from one generation to the next, and especially from one woman to the next. The only man to have been at the head of Château de Saint-Martin was Count Edme de Rohan-Chabot, a well-known figure in the world of wine. Now, Adeline de Barry, his granddaughter, the current owner of Château de Saint-Martin, wants to share that rich historical past via her wines.
The Château gets inspiration from the fundamentals of sustainable, organic and biodynamic agricultural movements, taking the best from each one… and composing its own environmentally friendly strategy!
Out of our 50 hectares of vineyards, approximately 40 are in production and 10 are ‘at work’ (fallow land, crop rotation, or replanting). We always strive to keep a balance between very old vines (30 to 80 years old), fully mature vines and young vines.
The wide range of Provençal flavours so often described and painted by artists are what we want to offer in our wines: we favour using several grape varieties to provide unique complexity and make the most of the range of wines.
In 2018, Adeline and Renaud de Barry brought the Liquoristerie de Provence back into the family fold. It is a premium artisanal company that produces absinthes, pastis, liqueurs and spirits on the Château de Saint-Martin estate.
