Château des Sarrins

Region: Provence

Winery Info

The name of the Domaine des Sarrins is derived from the word ‘Saracens.’ In the 11th century, local legends claim that a Saracen leader – killed in one of the many raids carried out in the region – was buried here ‘in his golden armour.’ Over the years the name has been shortened to ‘Les Sarrins.’

Located in the Var, near Lorgues, the vineyards of Domaine des Sarrins cover 25 hectares in the hills of the village of Saint Antonin du Var in the middle of forest and olive trees. Since its acquisition in 1995, the vineyard has been cultivated organically, replacing herbicides with natural methods. Domaine des Sarrins is certified organic.
