The Gassier family is one of the oldest in Provence and they remain firmly rooted there. The certified organic Château Gassier vineyard boasts a unique environment, at the heart of the Còtes de Provence Cru Sainte-Victoire appellation. The vineyards enjoy a light continental climate. Protected from the oceans influence to the south by the Monts Auréliens and the Sainte-Baume massif, the vines cover the hillsides of the upper Arc Valley. The rocky ridge of Sainte-Victoire affirms this continental microclimate and reduces the liveliness of the Mistral wind that can be so strong, whilst protecting the vines from parasitic attacks. The Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire vineyard, like almost all the vineyards in Provence, is considered one of the most natural in France.
