CHÂTEAU DE L'ESCARELLE


In 1920, François-Joseph Fournier (already owner of the island of Porquerolles) gave his wife this property backed by the foothills of the mountain of La Loube. In the 1960s, the Gassier family transformed the area which, with 100 hectares of vineyards, is probably the largest private cellar of the AOC Coteaux Var, acquired in 2014 by the businessman Yann Pineau. The Château de l’Escarelle vineyard has undergone a constant process of change and reinvention over a period of centuries. Boasting an outstanding location at the heart of the “Provence verte” region, the estate’s 100 hectares of vines flourish in 1100 hectares of stunningly beautiful, unspoilt countryside. The greatest of care is lavished upon the Château de l’Escarelle vineyard – Painstaking and frequent turning over of the soil along with the use of environmentally-friendly procedures and products and 100% certified organic fertilizer. Our different grape varieties have been carefully selected with each individual “terroir” and plot in mind
