Barbeyrolles was acquired in 1977 by Régine Sumeire. This twelve hectare vineyard located at the foot of the village in Gassin, is a preserved spot of magical beauty in the gulf of Saint-Tropez.
The coastal land of Château Barbeyrolles is located in the Maures hills, around five kilometers from the Mediterrean and around seven kilometers from Saint-Tropez. All twelve hectares have shaley soils dating back to the Paleozoic era. Soils are mainly made of clay, shale, sand and limestone. Average age of the vines of 35 years.
The wines from the Château Barbeyrolles are delicate, feminine, and mineral. Régine Sumeire is considered as the inventor of the pale-color for the rosé with the viniﬁcation of the Pétale de Rose in 1985.
Château Barbeyrolles’ philosophy is the result of a long family tradition focused on quality, expertise on organic farming. Proud of their terroir, men and women work with passion and respect in our estates.
The labor of the soils is performed through plowings, without chemical weedkillers. Château Barbeyrolles uses infusions and biodynamic preparations and received their Demeter biodynamic certification for 2020.
Manual harvesting in boxes. Château Barbeyrolles starts to cut very early in the morning to harvest fresh grapes. Their staff has been trained from generations to make a careful selection of the grapes while harvesting. Refrigerated trucks help maintain the grapes at a perfect temperature and avoid any risk of oxidation. Manual harvesting is key for the vinification of their wines because our rosé is pressed in whole-bunch grapes.
Château Barbeyrolles’ focus is to develop and modernize the estates in order to improve the production and maintain the best level of quality & innovation.
Vinification by gravity, without crushing, direct pressing in whole bunch grapes, on a hydraulic press typical from Champagne. Fermentation using indigenous yeasts and storage in stainless steel vats under controlled temperature.
