Château d’Ollières

AOP Coteaux Varois en Provence


Activities Tasting / Visit the field/the cellar


A beautiful place, as wonderful as its wines. The Rouy family, who’ve decided to convert it into a large vineyard, has restored the splendour of this thousand-year old castle. This family knows about wine, and good wine for that matter, since they are from Burgundy!


A guided tasting session taking place in a medieval vaulted winery, a shared moment out of time !

Original and unusual

Charles Rouy began studying philosophy in graduate school — a vocation that he pursued for several years until he discovered another one: viticulture. When his father asked him to take over a vineyard, the young man changed his tune to accompany his father's adventure. Goodbye Kant! He passed his diploma in oenology and viniculture in Beaune, one of the strongholds of the winemaker world. As they say, “in vino veritas”!
