The shallow, impermeable sandstone and schist soils provide ideal conditions for the production of fresh, fruity wines, all AOP Côtes de Provence.

To produce UP white, rosé and red wines in AOC Côtes de Provence, the Ultimate Provence growers cultivate a variety of grape varieties. grape varietiesThe main ones are :

  • Syrah: very common in the vineyards of southern France, this black grape variety gives red and rosé wines aromas of pepper, raspberry and liquorice;
  • Cinsault: A more delicate grape variety, Cinsault produces red and rosé wines full of finesse and elegance. Supple and light on the palate, it is used in blends to soften the more tannic and structured varieties;
  • Cabernet Sauvignon: the most widely grown grape variety in wineries around the world, Cabernet Sauvignon is appreciated for the peppery aroma and minerality it imparts to wines;
  • Grenache noir: this black grape variety from Spain produces aromatic, powerful Côtes de Provence with notes of black fruit and liquorice;
  • Grenache blanc: this robust white grape produces sweet wines with fruity and floral notes.

There are 4 accessory grape varieties that give all our wines their unique characteristics: rolle, sémillon, ugni blanc and clairette.

  • For rosé wine The grape varieties used to make rosé wines are syrah, cinsault, grenache noir and rolle. Syrah's raspberry and spice aromas and Grenache's black fruit notes are appreciated, while the power of Cinsault and Rolle, lighter grape varieties, is softened;
  • For white wine : Ultimate Provence white wines are made from a single white grape variety, rolle (or vermentino). This white grape, which thrives in warm climates, produces a fat, light wine whose freshness is much appreciated. Its many aromas include green apple, pear, pineapple and almond;
  • For red wine : UP red wines are made from two black grape varieties, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. When blended together, these two varieties produce powerful, aromatic red wines with good structure. We love the peppery notes so typical of Cabernet Sauvignon, and the licorice and raspberry aromas of Syrah.

Frequently asked questions about viticulture

A vineyard is a perfectly delineated property on which wine is produced. Logically, wine estates include vineyards, but not only vineyards. An estate can be composed of a vineyard, as well as various wine-making infrastructures: a warehouse, wine storehouses, a conservation and tasting cellar, a laboratory...

On the same vineyard estate, there may also be several vineyards, and winegrowers may cultivate several grape varieties, to ensure the diversity of the wines produced, or to be able to make perfectly balanced blended wines. Similarly, a single vineyard may produce wines under a single appellation, such as Ultimate Provence, which produces only AOP Côtes de Provence. But it's also possible to find several different appellations on the same estate, as in the case of Ultimate Provence. the case of Domaine de Berne, which produces both AOP Côtes de Provenceand IGP Méditerranée.

An estate has a unique name, often directly linked to its owner. Thus, a family estate generally bears the family name of the owners, while large wine estates choose a name based on the history of the property or its terroir. You'll often see the name "château", "clos" or "domaine". Please note that in order to use such a name, the winery must produce wines with a protected designation of origin.


While terroir is an essential criterion for the quality of the grapes grown on the Ultimate Provence estate, the work in the vineyard is just as decisive. The estate's winemakers put all their know-how to work in the vineyard, to produce top-quality organic wine. Organic farming encourages professionals to listen to the vines and use as few inputs as possible, in order to respect nature and biodiversity, and let the terroir express itself fully. Winegrowers are vigilant throughout the growth of the grapes, and harvesting always takes place at night, to preserve the freshness and aromas of the berries as much as possible.

Then, depending on the color of the wine to be produced, the winemaker turns to different winemaking techniques to produce quality Provence wines that bear witness to the richness of the Provençal terroirs.

The terroir of Provence is characterized by its two distinct geological units, crystalline and limestone. Each offers different types of vegetation (maquis and garrigue), but in general, Provençal soils are poor and well-drained. Their depth and low humidity are ideal for vine-growing.

The Mediterranean climate is also an ally for winegrowers, as the vines benefit from plenty of sunshine and wind. The Mistral is particularly interesting, as it cools the vineyards and protects them from humidity-related diseases.
