The Vallée des Baux in the South of France is one of six Provençal wine regions that possess an official appellation status. The reds, whites and rosés produced here are all marked with the AOP les Baux-de-Provence certification, joining the vast catalogue of French wines to have a certified status. But one particularity of this region is that it was the first in France to require all producers to farm biodynamically, and 85% of the Baux-de-Provence vineyards are organic.
If you’re a wine drinker and you’re thinking of Provence, a sun drenched terrace and a chilled glass of pale rosé naturally come to mind—two pleasures that Château d’Estoublon offers in unlimited quantities. One of Oetker Collection Masterpiece Estates, Château d’Estoublon is a stunningly beautiful 1731 domain stretching over several acres in the Vallée des Baux. The land surrounding the castle is devoted to olive groves and grapevines for cultivating the Estate’s cold-pressed olive oil and fine wines. No wine drinking experience quite matches sipping an organic 2018 Rosé Chateau while lounging on the poolside terrace at Château d’Estoublon, only minutes from where the grapes are grown.
Oetker Collection Masterpiece Estates invites you to live the Provençal dream and experience the immense wellbeing that comes from unstructured time in the South of France at Château d’Estoublon. As summer makes its departure and responsibility rushes in, take some time to plan your next getaway to a quiet and elegant retreat where—alongside the grape vines—you and your guests can be nurtured by the sun’s warm light. And a chilled bottle of rosé.
