With its name going back to 16th-century stag hunting by King Francis I,
Château Pas du Cerf is a longstanding family vineyard. Since 1848, eight generations of the Gualtieri family have followed one another in the craft of winemaking. Today, Geneviève and Patrick, together with their daughters, Aurore and Diane, pursue the family project with the aim of producing high-quality wines.
The vineyard encompasses nearly two hundred acres of south-facing hillsides on schistose soil in the heart of the Massif des Maures area. The family is committed to staying close to nature, using organic manure and other methods to produce top-quality grapes.
The entire area is a natural preserve in the heart of Provence.
The domaine’s naturally cold, semi-underground cellar receives grapes by gravity and contains sophisticated equipment. Two pneumatic pressing machines and a series of thermo-controlled stainless steel tanks stand beside a wine storehouse equipped with oak barrels. The storage and bottling facilities are isolated and fully air-conditioned, ensuring the preservation of the wines.
Variation of bled off rosés wines are made at the estate, from distinct blends of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre, Cinsault and Tibouren.
