Presentation

At the heart of the site of the Trois Caps, this family-owned domain produces some discreet and lovely wines. Who says Saint-Tropez was all glitz and glamor? On the peninsula, for two hundred years the domain of La Tourraque has been cultivating discretion and, more importantly, a sense of family. This old farm, which lived almost in autarky a hundred years ago, produces some lovely young vintages; you can discover them with the winemakers during the wine tourist visits that they organize. 

Extra

The domain is home to nearly 400 olive trees that offer a house olive oil. Through the ‘wine-tourism formulas’ set up by Sébastien Craveri you can visit the wineries on a 4x4 ride through the vineyards, tasting initiation and food tastings. 

Original and unusual

According to the records of the visit of the Côtes de Provence fortifications in 1323, ML Bartholomew already mentioned the existence of a place called "La Tourraque." This name would come from the topology of the place: in fact, the hills of the area would form like towers ("Tourr-") overlooking the sea ("-aque" of "aqua", Latin for water).
