Chateau Croix d’Allons

Description / History

Château Croix d’Allons is a small family wine estate in Provence, owned by Phillip and Florence – which are what we call neo-winegrowers. They recently settled on the family farm where Philippe’s great-grandparents planted their first vines in 1924. The couple’s ambition is to prove themselves worthy of this heritage and to develop this estate with authenticity and enthusiasm.

Philippe’s great-grandmother bought the property from the Salesian Brothers of Don Bosco in 1924 and since then we have been cultivating our vines (the oldest dating from 1922 for Clairette Blanche and 1952-1960 for Mourvèdre) on an exceptional terroir with passion and using Organic Agriculture (Ecocert certification).

The property consists of 9 hectares of land, on the oldest geological production area of Bandol. The area dates back 225 million years which really provides the wines with an exceptional character.

The main grape we work with is Mourvèdre (the king of the Bandol AOC). Mourvédre makes up 70% of the output from our 9 hectares. The other 2 varieties we work with are Grenache and Cinsault. They work in a beautiful symphony to produce the exclusive blends we are anxious for you to discover.
