Château d’Esclans is located twenty five kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Fréjus on the Mediterranean coast. The winery, located in the center of the Var department, where most of the Provence AOC rosé wines are produced, was originally part of a castle dating back to before the 12th century. The estate, now belonging to Sacha Lichine, has a total of 427 hectares, of which 140 are vineyards. Ever since the purchase of the property, Sacha Lichine had a clear goal: to create the greatest Rosé in the world. In fact, Sacha, showing great foresight, had sensed that Rosé, conceived, produced and marketed in a different way, could have gained new interests and alternative market shares.
