Further information

From the Gulf of Saint-Tropez*, we invite you to discover the Var hinterland with your driver-guide, heading for the Dracénie and Provence Verte. Aboard our comfortable air-conditioned van, your local guide and wine expert will share his knowledge of the region with you.

 

You'll start your day by discovering Château d'Astros. A sumptuous estate steeped in history, just a stone's throw from the Mediterranean.

 

  • In the 17th century, the original farmhouse was transformed into a Commandery by the Knights of Malta. They also built the very first Chai d'Astros in 1637.
  • It was not until the 19th century that the Château was built. Maximin Martin, a wealthy soap-maker from Marseille, acquired the land at Astros. His grandson, Marc Maximim Martin, a lover of Italian art, had a majestic Château built in 1860, inspired by Tuscan villas. He bequeathed the Astros estate to the grandson of his first cousin Joseph Maurel.
  • Today, the wine estate offers organic wines and has belonged to the Maurel family for 9 generations. It's a family that shares a love of the land and the living world, and is keen to help you discover the treasures of this unique place. 

 

We'd like to start our morning with a guided walk around this first wine estate. Two walks are available:

 

Sentier du Deffenson (45 minutes, easy): a walk through the estate's woods and the grounds of Château d'Astros.

 

Followed by a tasting of 3 of the estate's organic wines in their cellar.

 

Lunch at one of the wineries, with a choice of two options for the second winery of the day:

 

At Château de Berne, take a break to the heart of this winery's winegrowing culture by immersing yourself in their vineyards and various production areas. Immerse yourself in the world of winemaking by discovering the estate's production cellar, vat room and wine storehouses. Then round off your visit with a guided tasting of three wines.

For lunch, we suggest you dine in their Bistrot, a convivial place to share tasty moments! It's the perfect place to sample warm, authentic recipes. A bottle of wine for 4 people will be served; lunch not included.

 

or,

 

Château de la Martinette, in an idyllic setting in the heart of nature, come and discover a unique experience! From the vineyard to the cellar, via the tasting, come and discover the history of the estate, understand the winemaking process and the special characteristics of our wines. The guided tasting of the Château's wines takes place in a private room with a panoramic view over the vineyards.

For lunch at the Vigna restaurant, the chef has revisited his southern roots with a new menu for the estate's restaurant. Drawing her inspiration from the rich biodiversity of the surrounding countryside, the chef blurs the lines between art and gastronomy by transposing the freshness and emotions of the vines to the plate. A bottle of wine for 4 people will be served; lunch not included.

 

We finish the day with a visit to Château de Saint-Martin, Cru Classé. Stroll around the estate's grounds with your guide and take part in their VinoSpirit Experience, a visit to their Liquoristerie and a tasting of 3 wines in the estate's cellar.
