History of Château Saint Pierre

The Castle

As far as we know, the château Saint Pierre domaine dates back to the eleventh century. Recent rehabilitation work in the cellar has turned up vestiges of a church dedicated to Saint Pierre that had belonged to foulques, the lord of les Arcs. This priory and the land around it were bequeathed to the Saint Victor Abbey in 1055, and later became a country estate belonging to the les Arcs parish.

Handed down from father to son for the past four generations, the château's vineyards of mostly noble grape varieties (AOC designation of origin) currently comprise 55 hectares that strech from the Argens River up to the foot of the Maures mountain range. At Château Saint Pierre, we are ever attentive to the extreme importance of the local soil and have always maintained natural methods of cultivation that allow hte vines to produce their best.

By combining various technological advances with a traditional vinification process, the château Saint Pierre has been able toachieve its major objective: preserving the typicality and quality of its wines. The production ofits cellar has been intentionally limited in order to guarantee its quality.
