Château Calissanne, a thousand-year-old property, stands in a 1,200 hectare estate in one of the most gorgeous corners of Provence. This unique domaine offers an array of landscapes as rich as the 11 grape varieties that make up its 110 hectares of AOC Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence vines. Sixty hectares of AOC Aix-en-Provence olive trees thrive in chalky soils, facing the mountains dear to local playwright Marcel Pagnol. There are also 80 hectares of arable/forage crops: wheat and lucerne. Calissanne perpetuates the tradition of fine farming estates, and embodies the famous “Mediterranean trilogy”.

Coteaux d’Aix en Provence

Rocher Rouge

Rocher Rouge is Château Calissanne’s flagship cuvée, crafted from Mourvèdre and Syrah.

Seductively elegant and concentrated, it serves up hallmark notes of cedar, incense and garrigue scrubland. A wine of great character.

Huiles d’olives

Au pied des collines de Lançon-Provence, face à l’Estaque, les 50 hectares d’oliviers classés en A.O.C. Aix- en-Provence regardent vers la montagne “Sainte Victoire”. Orientées au Sud, les cinq oliveraies sont plantées sur des sols d’éboulis calcaire, dans un terroir chaud et sec qu’affectionne tout particulièrement cet arbre – symbole à lui seul de la civilisation méditerranéenne. Deux variétés traditionnelles du Pays d’Aix sont cultivées à Calissanne : l’Aglandau et la Salonenque.
