In the very heart of Green Provence and at the gates of the Haut Var, halfway between the Gorges du Verdon and the Mediterranean Sea, our beautiful village of Cotignac stands with panache at the foot of a majestic rock. Among fragrant hills and lush green planes, nature expresses itself with generosity.
Vineyards, centuries old olive trees and cypress hedges sign a landscape of character carved by men. Provence, in all its generosity but sometimes its violence…

This is where we as a family have chosen to give meaning to our life. Our project mirrors the centuries-old oak tree that stands proudly at the entrance of the estate. A long-term endeavour, an undertaking of passion, toil and learning. Vines and wines, a long road. Today, the vineyard covers 14 hectares in AOP Côtes de Provence. It is grown according to the principles of organic farming. Soils are predominantly clay-limestone, dolomite, ranging in colour from pale yellow to deep wine lees red. They are developed on marine geological formations dating from the early Jurassic (over 200 million years). In this small natural paradise, we produce white, rosé and red stemming from the traditional Provencal grape varieties, which are the true expression of our terroir. Wines that are the focus of much attention. Wines to gladden the human heart. Carpe Diem …
