The grapes come from a mixture of the estates own vineyards, alongside a rigorously sourced selection from their partners’ best vineyards in the Côtes de Provence, planted on mica-schist soil.
The winemaking process is executed with Minuty’s perfect understanding of winemaking temperatures that are low enough to lock in the grapes’ aromatic potential but high enough to bring out their subtleties. It blends Grenache for its elegant aromas, Syrah for its aromatic complexity, Cinsault for its vibrancy and Rolle, a top Provence white grape variety, for its earthy aromas.
Château Minuty was purchased in 1936 by the Matton-Farnet family and soon after, the vineyards were completely
replanted with a focus on traditional, local grape varieties, painstakingly farmed to produce lower yields. By the 1960s,
this quality-led approach had paid dividends as the wines of Château Minuty became a fixture on the lists of the
finest restaurants of the Côte D’Azur. A negociant arm was added to the business in 1995, applying their quality-focus
and production know-how to a complementary range of branded wines under the Minuty label. This foresight and
dedication cemented their position as one of the most-recognised producers in the region, long before the explosion in
popularity of delicate, pale Rosés that has occurred in recent years.
