Aimé Roquesante

These wines are made in the foothills of the Massif des Maures, its roots firmly in the classic traditions of Southern French wines. From this very special setting in the commune of Vidauban, the wines reflect all the rich nuances of their terroir. The soils here are exceptionally free-draining, and enjoy the dry, protective influence of the Mistral wind. As they develop here in the shelter of the Argens Valley, the region’s classic grape varietals revel in the warm, sunny Mediterranean climate.
