Château Barbeyrolles

Château Barbeyrolles is Provence’s insider’s secret, the estate where the iconic Provence rosé style – as we know it today – all began. 

About

This tiny gem of an estate is located near Saint-Tropez, just a stone’s throw from the Med. Its 12 hectares of old organic vineyards nestle in the valley below Gassin, a picturesque provençale village overlooking St Tropez. Barbeyrolles belongs to Régine Sumeire, whose family history in the region can be traced to the 13th century.

When Régine first chanced upon Barbeyrolles it was totally dilapidated, but its natural advantages and potential were clear: its proximity to the mediterranean mitigates the extremes of both summer and winter temperatures; its valley position is a natural sun trap, while affording further protection from the elements; furthermore, its ancient shale-schist soils were an ideal medium for growing high quality grapes.

Régine was responsible for pioneering the pale pink rosé style which we associate with Provence today – changing the fashion from the more robust, orange-tinted wines popular until the mid-1980s. The original Barbeyrolles rosé recipe is still used to this day – a cult classic for those in the know.

Region

French Wine

France is without doubt the world’s supreme wine-producing country, unmatched for the finesse, style and sheer diversity of its wines. France’s revered wine regions form a roll of honour beyond compare. The enduring appeal of France’s classic wine styles turns on the peculiarly French – and often controversial – concept of terroir, the belief in wine with a ‘sense of place’, with flavours and textures.
