Our vineyard

The entire vineyard of Château de Pampelonne is located in the Côtes de Provence PDO zone.
It enjoys mild temperatures all year round and exceptional sunshine.
On a surface of 50 hectares, our 80% sandy soils combined with a great maritime influence favor the concentration of the grapes at the time of maturation. We have a wide range of grape varieties, some of which are 100 years old.
The grape varieties:
White: Rolle and Ugni Blanc.
Red: Grenache and Syrah.
Rosé: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Tibourenc, Mourvèdre.
High Environmental Value (HVE):
Since the 2018 vintage, the Château de Pampelonne vineyard has been certified in HVE.
This certification guarantees that the agricultural practices used on all of our operations preserve the natural ecosystem and minimize the pressure on the environment (soil, water, air, landscape ...).
The vinifications:
The harvest is carried out at night in order to preserve the primary aromas of the grapes.
All the grapes are destemmed.
Our rosé wines are produced by direct pressing. Fermentation takes place under controlled temperature. No malolactic fermentation. The wines are aged at least 4 months on fine lees before being filtered and bottled.

A family farm passed down from generation to generation.
In the 19th century, under the Napoleonic regime, at the time of the Italian campaign, one of the ancestors of the Gasquet family (André Falcon) worked as treasurer for the government.
He lives in Marseille and is forced to travel very often to Italy to pay the soldiers and manage the expenses of this campaign.
To do this, he decides to buy land in the middle of his long road to Italy. It was then that he spotted the small village of Ramatuelle and decided to build a house there for his family.
At the start, there was no culture. Then, in 1920, after the First World War, the Gasquet family decided to plant vines on 2 hectares which developed over time to reach today an area of 50 hectares.
