Ideally located within a thirty-minute radius from the Bay of Saint-Tropez, the Cannes Croisette, the Gorges du Verdon and Aix-en-Provence, Château Sainte Roseline’s one thousand year-old terroir is a haven where ancient and contemporary art thrive in harmony with the art of vinification.
It all began around a generous water source – and we know, through the novels of Giono and Pagnol, the importance of water in Provence; its presence led a hermit named ROUBAUD to retire here in the middle of the tenth century.
In 1994, Bernard Teillaud took the future of this wonderful estate into his hands with the intention to make it one of the gems of southern viticulture while turning it into an artistic destination.
The abbey was completely renovated under the leadership of architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, who was able to preserve its nobility. Bernard Teillaud asked him to redesign the interior of the Château without altering its historical features.
In 2007, Aurélie Bertin Teillaud (Bernard’s daughter) took over management of this beautiful estate, intent on investing as much as possible into the pursuit of quality and the search for a distinctive yet genuine personality for each of the vineyard’s wines.
Being immersed in culture (both of the mind and of the soil), this exceptional place inspires meditation and contemplation, and is an invitation to taste and conviviality around a highly refined palette of Côtes de Provence reds, rosés and whites.
THE CLOISTER AND THE PARK
The 12th-century cloister displays beautiful half-gothic, half-roman ribs. At the base of one of the pillars adorned with rosebushes still lives a Carignan vine nearly one-hundred-and-forty years-old! A row of magnificent old plane trees leads to the park and to a large pool from which the spring water runs toward the giant roots of the surrounding redwoods. In front of the Château stand two gigantic 18th-century plane trees, as well as an oval pond surrounded by boxwood hedges in the French garden style.
