Vineyard Information

Château de l'Aumérade is a 400 year old estate located in the heart Provence and dates back to the Renaissance period. In 1594, the Duke of Sully, Henry VI's finance minister, presented the Château with a Mulberry tree and Plane treees for their luxurious gardens, for supplying the Royal Court. In 1930, Henri Fabre senior and his wife Charlotte fell in love with Château de l'Aumérade, with its 300 hectares of estate vineyards, and purchased it from the Aumerat family. The Château was designated as a Cru Classé when the Provence appellation was created in 1955 and is one of 18 that retain this designation. The Château has been handed down though the family and is currently run by Caroline Demey.

The Cuvée Marie-Christine rosé is made exclusively from an 89 hectare Cru Classé parcel, located on the plains of Pierrefeu. The mineral rich terroir of red clay and limestone soils in this parcel provide good drainage and the vines receive a cooling ventilation from the salty Mistral winds blowing in from the sea just a few miles away. Château Aumerade holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE) certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.
