Château Roubine

  • Stroll the botanical path

A renowned cru classé, this vineyard that is one of the oldest in France has laid out a 2.8km educational trail for discovering its diverse and unusual flora. Thanks to an exceptional climate and a unique situation, a dozen species of trees and some 50 species of herbaceous plants cohabit with the vineyard's 13 varieties of grapes. Château Roubine also runs Provençal cookery classes and provides charming accommodation at Le Mas des Candeliers, in four guesthouses looking onto a Roman pond.
