Domaine Terres de Mistral - Provence
The vineyards of Terre de Mistral extend over 123 acres in different sectors with the furthest located at the foothill of the Sainte Victoire Mountain. Grenache, Syrah, Rolle, Cinsault and Carignan, are used to produce the AOP Côtes de Provence and AOP Côtes de Provence "Sainte Victoire". Adjacent to the winery of the Terre de Mistral is clay limestone soil, favorable for higher yield. That area is on a plain and is used to produce the IGP Méditerranée wines such as Merlot, Cabernet, Petit Verdot, small grain Muscat, Viognier, Collombar and Sangiovese grapes.
Since its creation, the wine cellar has seen regular equipment and technological upgrades to make it an advanced tool in the development of the all wines primarily the rosé de Provence. This has directly impacted the quality and style of the 100% Sangiovese rose, a fuller bodied rose dictated by the varietal with a very dry finish Provence style!
