Top Saint Tropez Vineyards to Not Miss this Summer 2023

Provence is one of France’s most important wine producing regions of the world with more than 150 million litres of wine produced in the Var alone (more than 80 per cent of that being Rosé wine). Over the past few decades several celebrities have brought this to light by purchasing large domains in France and even selling their own brand of wine. From Brad and Angelina’s picturesque Château Miravel and its signature rosé to Kylie Minogue’s line of prestigious wines produced at Château Sainte-Roseline in the Var, the world’s eyes are fixed on France for the production of some of the best wines in the world.

The glamorous village of Saint Tropez is internationally recognised as a VIP summer hot spot complete with the most lavish beach parties and luxury lifestyle; however it is also a key location for top French wineries. During the drive into Saint Tropez one cannot help but notice the never ending rows of sun-kissed vineyards which line the area of Gassin (located just outside of St Tropez). The draw-dropping beauty of these Provencal vineyards have even sparked guests to request a villa for rent near vineyards so they may enjoy the view and/or proximity to these top attractions.

The local experts of St Tropez House have compiled a list of the top St Tropez wineries to not miss during your time in Saint Tropez this summer:

Chateau Minuty is one of Provence’s best known vineyards located a stone’s throw from some of our most exclusive Saint Tropez rentals. It is also one of the most established wine-making businesses in the South of France having been founded by Gabriel Farnet, the grandfather of current owners’ Jean-Etienne and Francois Matton, in 1936. Chateau Minuty’s famous Rosés are a blend of a majority of Grenache – known by those in the know as the superior varietal for rosé, and of Tibouren, a grape which is symbolic of the Saint Tropez peninsula.
