Between sea and mountain is one of the Var coast gems. The blue of the Mediterranean Sea, a profusion of green, red, white, pink: this is the beautiful palette of Sébastien Ferrari . The family acquired Château Malherbe eighty years ago and has been watching over this Eden ever since with some talent.


At a maximum, sixty bottles an hour are produced here; it is at this slow pace that the bottles of Château Malherbe are being punched. The operation is made entirely by hand, and there’s no departing the rule, for none of the 70,000 bottles produced annually in this domain of Bormes-les-Mimosas escapes the small hemp ribbon, hot wax and stamp bearing the current vintage.

Original and unusual

President Georges Pompidou had requested authorization to Mireille Ferrari to walk in her vineyard. The permission was of course granted, which he used often, enjoying the tranquillity of the place and the beautiful scenery.
