This young winery is heir to a long history. A few minutes from the famous Thoronet Abbey, the Guilde des Vignerons worships Bacchus daily. Its fifty members now share this devotion with thousands of faithful, converted to its gourmand wines.


“If, for some years, our production has improved significantly, it is probably because we are more severe on sorting and harvest conditions. In particular, we impose that grapes should be picked in the early hours of the day to ensure freshness and aromatic intensity of our rosés.

Original and unusual

Wine has been grown on the Thoronet for a millennium. The monks were the first ones to plant vine stocks. A Cistercian community settled here in 1160, and built a great abbey. The religious left it during the Revolution time. Classified as a historic Monument in 1840, it is now a major tourist site.
