Château Sainte Roseline, based in Les Arcs-Sur-Argens, near the bay of Saint-Tropez, the Croisette in Cannes, the Gorges du Verdon and even Aix-en-Provence, is a Classified Site and an Estate Cru Classé AOP-Côtes de Provence. It is one of the most visited places in the region.
The Sainte Roseline Chapel and the Cloister
The Chapel, erected in the 11th century, and the Cloister which has been adjoining it since the 12th century, were both classified as historical monuments in 1980. The Communal Chapel houses the body and relics of Saint Roseline, Mother Prioress of the Abbey of the Celle-Roubaud from 1300 to 1329. Many miracles earned her canonization in the 19th century. The Chapel then took the name of Sainte Roseline. More information here.
The Cloister, endowed with beautiful half-Gothic, half-Romanesque warheads, is bordered by a bicentenary "alley of plane trees" which leads to the private park of the Château.

In 2007, Aurélie BERTIN-TEILLAUD, passionate about this land, continued the development of this Cru Classé de Provence and included the estate in a sustainable development approach. The TEILLAUD family has always maintained a special and strong link with contemporary art. Thus, for more than fifteen years, Château Sainte Roseline has welcomed works by established artists every summer on the estate.
History of estate
An abundant spring on the estate led a hermit named ROUBAUD to retire there. Little by little, from a simple oratory, an Abbey was born and took the name of CELLE-ROUBAUD.
The Communal Chapel was erected as the abbey of La Celle-Roubaud.
[Miracle of the Roses] It is said that one winter of famine, Roseline de Villeneuve, eldest daughter of the Lord of the Arcs, is surprised to steal the family reserves to distribute them to the poor. Summoned to show what she has in her apron, an armful of roses escapes !
Château Sainte Roseline becomes one of the first vineyards in Provence.

110 HECTARES OF VINEYARD
The vineyard of Château Sainte Roseline enjoys an exceptional terroir in Provence: the clay-limestone soils and the presence of a deep source allow a controlled supply of the vine, a guarantee of obtaining great wines. He was also rewarded in 1955 with the “CRU CLASSÉ” distinction. Today, the AOP Côtes de Provence Cru Classé vineyard extends over 110 hectares where 11 grape varieties are grown, thus allowing the production of rosé, white and red wines within our Sainte Roseline vineyard.
The team ensures the good development of the vine all year round thanks to demanding cultural practices aimed at encouraging the concentration of the berries. The constant quest for quality has led us to adopt a new sorting system that is particularly innovative and at the cutting edge of technology. Ultra modern, the Château Sainte Roseline vinification cellar covers 800 m2. It is equipped with numerous vats, all thermo-regulated, offering the team of wine merchants a great working tool. For the reds: Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cabernet Sauvignon. For the rosés: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Tibouren. For the whites: Rolle and Sémillon.
