PROVENCE WINE TOURISM AT UP
Set amid magnificent wild, mineral scenery, at the heart of France’s largest nature reserve, the UP terroir spans 114 acres of organic AOP Côtes de Provence vines producing delicate, expressive wines curated by our winegrowers. The Syrah grape variety flourishes here.
ULTIMATE PROVENCE, A WINE ESTATE AT THE HEART OF A NATURE RESERVE
Characterized by its shallow soil set on a slab of impermeable sandstone, Ultimate Provence lies at the heart of a nature reserve amid a large forest of holm oaks, on a terroir nourished with a rich mulch of oak leaves and vine shoots. Its sun-drenched hillsides are planted with Cinsault grapes. Down below lies a beautiful plot of Rolle grapes, renowned for their fruity notes of citrus and pear. The “Grande Pièce” – a magnificent plot on the plateau – , is totally dedicated to Syrah grapes, offering up wines with heady aromas of violets and red and black fruit.
Finally, young white and black Grenache grapes thrive on the “Perrono” plot – named after the family who planted the first vines on the property in the mid-20th century –, alongside Syrah vines. Ultimate Provence truly is a unique terroir.
