ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
This lovely rose is produced by Chateau de la Pascalette, which was built in 1889 by Victor Roux and is one of the most remarkable buildings of La Londe-Les-Maures. In the beginning of the 20th century, the château was surrounded by orange and lemon groves, with acres of endless vineyards. Its cellars were equipped with old tanks and barrels, a testimony to its past. Abandoned after World War II, the château stayed lifeless for about 50 years until its acquisition in 2001.Their Castel des Maures vineyard is located at Hyeres in the French Riviera, on the slopes of the Vallee de Sauvebonne, along the edge of the Foret des Maures.
