Mirabeau Rose Tasting

May 1 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$15

Join us for a special Mirabeau Rose tasting hosted by Winebow.

Located 13km from the historic village of La Garde-Freinet and in the commune of the Golfe de Saint-Tropez, the domaine is a just an hour from Nice airport and an hour-and-a-quarter from Marseille and therefore ideally situated for international travel and exploring the glamourous French Riviera. Nestling in a secluded section of the Plaine des Maures National Nature Reserve, its unique position means it’s also close to Provence’s stunning villages, idyllic countryside and coastline.

Domaine Mirabeau falls within the newly created subregion within the Côtes de Provence AOC, Notre Dame des Anges. The terroir covers 3,900 hectares of vineyards interwoven within the landscape of umbrella pines, cork oak trees and chestnut groves typical of the Plaine des Maures, an ecosystem rich in fauna and flora.

The 20-hectare estate includes 14 hectares of vines (principally grenache, cinsault and rolle) and enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot summers, bright sunlight and a prevailing easterly wind. Unlike the rest of the region, which is dominated by low, soft-leaved ‘garrigue’ scrubland, this part of Provence is noticeably different with evergreen ‘maquis’ scrubland and stony terrain formed from pink sandstone and sandy soils.

Domaine Mirabeau reflects Stephen and Jeany’s hopes and dreams. Committed to their roles as stewards of their land, both founders want to honour the position of this uniquely beautiful site. Embracing ambitious farming practices and wine making techniques, the estate is moving towards a future of regenerative farming.

La Réserve, their first cuvée from Domaine Mirabeau, is a limited edition, complex gastronomic rosé wine. With 50% of profits supporting Stephen’s Regenerative Viticulture Foundation, a platform for information and research, La Réserve marks their pioneering commitment to a future of regenerative farming.
