Côtes de Provence - Red

During your holiday in the south of France, do not be shy in combining cultural visits with wine tourism! Set out on the tasting discovery of the red Côtes de Provence at the Domaine des Tournels. Our wine-growing estate extends over 100 hectares above the Gulf of Saint Tropez, facing the mythical Baie de Pampelonne. It is thanks to the particular region that the reputation of Provence wines is well established. The schist slopes combined with the Meditterranean climate of the seashore procure ideal climatic and geographical conditions for the vineyard. It is mainly owing to the mistral, this violent and dry wind which protects the vine from humidity-linked diseases, that the wine production both experiences few losses and excels in the quality of its vines. Although Provence is renowned for being the top AOC rosé-producing region in France, we have still given over 15% of our production to red wines.

Our Syrah Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon reds are characterised by a garnet colour and a bouquet of aromas of red fruit, akin to gingerbread and a little note of leather. When young, lively and fruity our red Côtes de Provence is the perfect accompaniment to grills flavoured with lovely herbs of the Mediterranean garrigues (thyme, oregano, savory and others) or even a delicious mixed salad sprinkled with olive oil. On the contrary, long-keeping wines which have fully matured go together more particularly with powerful dishes such as game, red meats cooked in sauce or so-called character cheeses. Reds are much in evidence on the Domaine des Tournels wine-producing estate!

Please come and taste our distinguished AOC grands crus within our tasting cellar situated in the heart of the wine-producing estate. Close your eyes and listen to the sound of the cicadas, smell the scent of the umbrella pines which line the paths…It is the ideal place to discover our red Côtes de Provence wines! If you are delighted by the location of the wine-producing estate, do not hesitate to reserve a short or long stay in the Les Tournels campsite which borders our vineyard. A real corner of paradise within the vines, with the superb Baie de Pampelonne and the Camarat lighthouse as a backdrop.
