The Côtes de Provence wines draw their strength of character from a sun-drenched land at the foothills of the Sainte-Victoire Mountain. Halfway between Aix-en-Provence and Saint-Maximin, Château des Ferrages is one of the four fortresses that shaped the history of Pourcieux. Surrounded by wooded parklands, this traditional Renaissance building overlooked the village. Most of the building has been lost over time and only the tower and a few architectural remains still exist today. Its most valuable treasure, however, is undoubtedly the wine domaine that bears its name. Its 28 hectares of vines produce four cuvées that are carefully aged in the Château des Ferrages cellars. These cellars combine modern vinification techniques and traditional methods of ageing.
With a 1-square-kilometer winery that has a total production capacity of 3,500 hectolitres, the estate currently produces 1,400 hectolitres per year. The soil is clay-limestone. Viticulture is done the traditional way. A combination of modern winemaking techniques and traditional ageing produces distinctive wines with lots of personality.
