A large estate (700ha) reached up a very long single track lane through beautiful woods – coming to this vineyard will give a rare opportunity of seeing the wild landscape of the region in an increasingly built up area. Until 2000 all its grapes, planted over 80ha, were sent to the local wine cooperative. Now the Gualtieri family work together to make an excellent range of wines have been active in promoting the sub-appellation of Côtes de Provence-La Londe. Its top reds have a high percentage of Syrah and are already proving to have ageing potential. The rosés are largely Grenache based and the whites either 100% or predominantly Rolle. Do not be put off by the appearance of a big impersonal estate with its smart showroom and offices; they are all newly built and many of the personnel are family.
