Château La Calisse

APPELLATION Coteaux Varois en Provence

Patricia Ortelli acquired the Château La Calisse in 1991. Since its purchase, the vineyard has been thoroughly restored. The vines have been replanted with a north/south orientation in soils with a chalky, balanced texture. The land has been sub-soiled, drained, leveled, and spread over several terraces with excellent sun exposure. The Romans were the first to grow vines on this grape-friendly estate, which sits at an altitude of 1,250 feet and is situated in a depression with a unique microclimate.

The vineyard received organic certification in 1996. Annual production is 20,000 bottles of rosé, 15,000 bottles of white, and 15,000 bottles of red.
