The grapes come from the oldest of the estate’s own coastal vineyards, in Provence, France, which are sustainably farmed and planted on mica-schist soils with a south-western exposure. The grapes were all harvested by hand.
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.
