Presentation

Here, the earth, the sun and the passion of the owners contribute to nourish beautiful wines. Between Pierrefeu and Collobrières, the Portanière lies at the heart of the Maures forest. In a century and a half of existence, this quiet domain has embraced many vocations, with the plantation of olive trees, fruit trees and vines. And, more recently, through the installation of a cellar in the former silkworm nursery, the new owners are making wine, and a good one at that.

Extra

The estate features a one-hectare orchard with eight different varieties of apple trees. Their alliance gives juices full of flavour, originality and naturalness. Discover also the house olive oil: it is fiery, very aromatic with a spicy finish.

Original and unusual

A small stream crosses Domaine de la Portanière: the Real Collobrier. Regularly, visitors wishing to establish a while along its banks seek the Blancard family. However, they’re not fishermen, but miners: the river contains some gold dust! This is not the Klondike, but enough for enthusiasts to have a good time dreaming of the golden age, sieve in hand.
