Chateau Minuty has a remarkable site on the slopes of the villages of Gassin and Ramatuelle, overlooking the bay of Saint-Tropez.
Château Minuty’s outstanding rosés are a blend of a majority of Grenache, the ‘king-pin varietal for rosés’, and of Tibouren, symbolic of the Saint-Tropez peninsula, a varietal which was kept in order to maintain the typical character of the wines. The white wines are produced mainly from Rolle, which has been grown for generations in the Var region. Reds are produced from Syrah and Mourvèdre, the typically Provencal varietal which thrives in these schist soils from the seaside.
Owner: Gabriel Farnet
Gabriel Farnet set himself up at Château Minuty in 1936 and set about restoring it to its former splendour. And so it was that in 1955, Château Minuty became one of 23 wineries to be classified as the distinguished Cru Classé des Côtes de Provence, or Classified Growths of the Côtes de Provence.
Etienne Matton, who was for many years the president of the Classified Growths, replanted traditional Provencal grape varietals with limited yields, strived for the highest quality of vinification and secured the reputation of Château Minuty in the greatest restaurants of the French Riviera.
