Presentation

Two legendary mountains protect this family vineyard. At the foot of the Sainte-Baume and near the Sainte-Victoire, the vineyards of the Boyer family are composed of 66 hectares of sun-drenched land worked in the most natural way.

Extra

Rather than lose the tourists on the local roads, the Boyer family had the foresight to set up their tasting room at the entrance of Saint-Maximin, a few hundred meters from the famous Royal Abbey. It offers all of the house wine production and a nice selection of local products.

Original and unusual

Promoted to the head of the estate of Saint-Jean le Vieux a little more than twenty years ago, Claude and Pierre Boyer are heirs to a long family tradition. It goes back, in fact, to 1660. Louis XIV was reigning over France when our winemakers’ ancestors gained their first land in the plains of St. Maximin.
