SOME HISTORY

1901: birth of the vineyard
1958: Île des Embiez is bought by Paul Ricard
10 hectares (A.O.C.), Côte de Provence and Vin de Pays du Var.

We knew Paul Ricard created the famous brand of anis-flavored drink, but he also produced wine and not just any wine, the wine of his island…

When Paul Ricard acquires the Ile des Embiez in 1958, the island already has 10 hectares of vineyards, whose origins date back to 1901. These sun-soaked grapes produced as early as 1978 an AOC labelled wine Côtes de Provence and Vins du Pays du Var. Still today, divided into AOP Côtes de Provence and IGP Vin de Pays du Var.

Paul Ricard was a forerunner in the field of ecology and decided to continue this ancient wine-producing tradition. Nowadays, his descendants which are faithful to his ideas, are carrying on this tradition, by putting this unique terroir of the Île des Embiez in the spotlight.

The soils made up of a limestone and clay mix benefit from the influence of the sea which helps us keep a tasty acidity in the grapes. All of these influences are what is typical of our wines, which is characterized by a nice saline basis.

The conduct of the vineyard is within reasoned wine-making where the respect of the grapevine is our priority.  We are starting in 2017 an organic conversion of the vineyard.

In winter

Pre-trim, mechanical weeding “by tractor”, or by hand “with a hoe” from January to the harvest, trimming.

In spring

Debudding, straitening or tethering of the grapevine, stripping, branch removal, replacement of the ceps torn off the previous year

In summer

Shearing, harvest in green before the ripening, stripping on the side of the rising sun.

In autumn

Manual harvest, maintenance of the vineyard (creation of trails, staking …)
