Terroir designation of the Côtes de Provence AOC recognized in

2005
The vineyards of Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire are located at the foot of Sainte-Victoire Mountain. There are nine communes within the boundaries of the Sainte-Victoire designation: in the Bouches-du-Rhône department, Châteauneuf-le-Rouge, Le Tholonet, Meyreuil, Peynier, Puyloubier, Rousset and Trets, and in the Var, Pourcieux and Pourrières.

A continental micro-climate

This region enjoys a climate with slightly continental nuances. Protected from maritime influences to the south by the Monts Auréliens and the Sainte-Baume Mountain Range, it covers the hillsides of the upper Arc Valley. Sainte-Victoire's rocky ridge confirms this continental micro-climate and somewhat lessens the intensity of the Mistral wind. The Mistral can however blow very hard there, protecting the vines from disease. The Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire wine region (like everywhere in the larger Provence wine region) is considered to be one of the most natural in France, thanks to the drying effects of the Mistral.

Poor soils, generous wines

The poor, relatively shallow soil here, formed of limestone and clayey sandstone, bears quality vineyards: great red wines that are delicate or robust and generous, as well as elegant rosés with subtle flavours.
