Discover the hidden side of an exceptional terroir nestled between the Massif des Maures and the Mediterranean Sea. The Saint-Tropez peninsula offers ideal conditions for the production of a quality wine in a remarkable environment where you can take the time and meet the men and women who make this rosé. On your way back from the market, get a seat in the shade of a terrace and enjoy a glass of wine paired with grilled fish and seasonal vegetables. Then, you’ll have a choice between the beach (a legendary one, at that!) or continue your visit of this extraordinary terroir.
The Ligurians were the first occupants of the peninsula and had already been producing wine from wild grapevines. The Celts and the Ionians founded posts all over the coast, including Anthénopolis, the future city of Saint-Tropez. When the Romans came to Provence the port was put under the authority of Massalia (Marseille). In 49 BC J.-C., the peninsula was annexed by Julius Caesar. The Roman soldiers gave up their arms to give birth to the Provençal vineyard, until the barbarian invasions.
