Chateau La Calisse

This organic vineyard is run with panache and dedication by the charismatic Patricia Ortelli. The whole estate was acquired and renovated in the early ‘nineties, and is now a leading estate in Provence. The yearly production is small and the wines are much sought after, with distinguished clients such as the French Government, the Carlton Hotel in Cannes and 3-star Michelin Restaurants!
