An exceptional geographical location
Located in the heart of the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, between the Luberon mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Domaine Saint Jean extends over thirty-five hectares. It benefits from an exceptional environment. The Mediterranean climate characterised by hot, dry summers and mild, humid winters, the presence of the Mistral, (a strong and localised wind), allows to maintain a healthy vineyard environment, easily prevented from diseases.
The soil is a clay-silty texture, made up of silt (rich, permeable to water and warms quickly), clay (fertile and excellent water retention) and sand (easy to work) in balanced proportions. The presence of gravel helps loosen the soil.
Domaine Saint Jean is classified as AOP Luberon and IGP Méditerranée. The grape varieties grown are mainly Syrah, Vermentino and Grenache (white and black). Ugni Blanc and Carignan are also present.
