Château Saint-Martin de la Garrigue is considered to be one of the best vineyard properties in the south of France. The estate includes a Renaissance style castle from the 16th century and a lovely chapel from the 9th century. The property is surrounded by 100 hectares of garrigue, pine and olive trees as well as 60 hectares of vineyard composed of nine red and eight white grape varieties. The fifty plots that make up the estate vineyard stand around the castle in a typically Mediterranean environment, with eastward facing slopes and warm summers tempered by sea breezes. The vineyards are marked by the unmistakable smell of pine intermingling with the pungent aromas of evergreen oak, almond, olive, thyme, rosemary and downy cistus that dominate the surrounding Mediterranean garrigue.
The soils are composed of limestone conglomerate and red sandstone, which, together with maintaining low yields and harvesting at a late maturity of the grape, give concentrated and aromatic wines that are sure to impress and please the senses.
