Château de Saint Martin (Cru Classé since 1955) is a beautiful estate of over 100 hectares, of which some 50 hectares form the actual vineyards, deeply marked by its 2,000 year history. The Romans who cultivated the first vines, left traces of their occupation by way of the ruins of a large Roman Villa. The château then became a priory vineyard, run by the monks from the Abbey of the Ile de Lérins (in the bay of Cannes) who, starting in the 12th century, the built an underground cellar and the stone vats where the wines are still aged today. Since 1740, Château de Saint Martin has been in the same family, and rather fascinatingly, passed down the female line of the family - transmitted from mother to daughter for 10 out of the past 11 generations.

The history of this remarkable estate begins back in 1851, with the first plantation of fields of vines that today are recognised as some of the most beautiful in Provence. In the old Provençal dialeact the word Font means fountain or source, and a Broc is a pitcher – and this spring water is the promise of fertility for the lands that surround it. Built on a hill top in the Var, right in the heart of the Côtes de Provence appellation, between the Estérel and the Gulf of St Tropez, Font du Broc is a treat for the senses, and filled with the flavours and scents of Provence. Château Font du Broc is the flagship estate of the Massa family, and the property covers over one hundred hectares, where horses, vines and olive groves share this magical place.

As he says - “ I was determined to realise my dream of owning a vineyard in Provence, an area for which I have so much passion”, and in achieving this, Markus Conrad has not done things by halves. Together with his wife, Anne-Rose, they have breathed new life into a 100 year-old estate, building a whole new, modern cellar complex of some 3,000 sq ft, whilst at the same time respecting the “old ways of working”, what is now a fully organic vineyard.
