This winery has been in the family for generations. Over looking the bay of Frejus, the Chateau produces a whole number of great wines including a Côtes de Provence Fréjus. It is a great place to learn about the importance of terroir!

The Domaine du Jas D'esclans was one of the first certified organic vineyards in Provence. The philosophy of sustainable wine making is not limited to the vines but is applied to every aspect of the winery. For those looking for great quality organic wines, look no further.

The Domaine du Dragon : a pretty unique terroir with a pretty unique history. This has to be the only vineyard I know of that used to be home to a Dragon. Unfortunately the Dragon has gone but the vines remain, producing excellent whites, rosés and reds.
