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!
