Presentation

Wines and fruits to satisfy the sin of gluttony. At the head of the family business for about fifteen years, Hélène Cauvet has known very early on to stick to the major trends that are now making the success of wines of Provence. Her rosés are clear and complex, and she’s been cultivating her land according to the precepts of organic farming (bio). 

Extra

La Tuilerie offers food and shelter. The estate has indeed four holiday-accommodations labelled Gîtes de France. At the edge of the vineyard, they can accommodate from 3 to 8 people. On the gourmet side, La Tuilerie sells its seasonal production of peaches, melons, tomatoes and apricots.

Original and unusual

Hélène Cauvet’s domain is named after a former tilery. It was established here in the nineteenth century to enjoy the many surrounding clay quarries. It was producing pottery jar and worked until the end of the Belle Epoque. After its closure, Maximilian Fausset, Hélène’s great grandfather, bought the property to give it the agricultural vocation that it has today.
