A bit of history… The history of Domaine Sainte-Marie dates back to the 18th century, when the property belonged to the Monastery of Verne, located a bit higher in the Massif des Maures. In those days, less than 25 acres were cultivated with grapevines. In 1884, a cholera epidemic struck the whole region and stopped right on our property. In recognition of the people's suffering, a statue of the virgin Sainte Marie was built, giving its name to the property. Since then, several generations of winegrowers have succeeded one another, all emphasizing the domaine's exceptional soil and producing wines of great quality.
The domaine is 15 km from Saint Tropez, with the nearest international airport at Nice, 100 km away.
Domaine Sainte Marie’s vineyards stretch out over 810 acres of land. With a great southern exposure, the soil is made of a filterable siliceous soil containing mica-schist, schist, and white quartz. The slopes are rather soft.
