In the Heart of Provence
Domaine de la Navicelle is located in the heart of the Provence wine region, in the AOP Côtes de Provence appellation. More precisely, the winery is located on the northern slope of a hill called Colle Noire, near the littoral conservatory.
The Right Location of The WInery
The vine rows are terraced on heavy clay soils and a rocky subsoil composed of limestone, sandstone and schists. The north orientation and proximity of the sea protects the vineyards from heat and allows winemakers at Domaine de la Navicelle to produce, without needing irrigation systems, generous and complex wines, with a fine minerality and a real terroir identity.
Different varieties are planted in the vineyards of Domaine de la Navicelle: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Tibouren for red and rosé wines; Rolle, Clairette and Muscat for white wines. To fully exploit this exceptional terroir, wthe team works in compliance with organic farming and have been respecting the principles of biodynamic farming for many years. Their biggest wish is to produce the best wines in total harmony with the beautiful environment of Provence.
