The only lamp shaped bottle: The Lampe de Méduse bottle is the estate’s emblem since 1950. Baroness Rasque de Laval, former estate owner, created this bottle to honor the knights of Medusa, one of the oldest wine fraternities in France. Their motto was “Lamp in hand, lamp well lit, let us lift it to eye level and invoke Mother Medusa, let’s lamp!” (LAMP = CHUG) The knights used to “lamp” their wine, in other words, drink it in one gulp (Quarantine style?)
Château Sainte Roseline
Ideally located within a thirty-minute radius from the Bay of Saint-Tropez, the Cannes Croisette, the Gorges du Verdon and Aix-en-Provence, Château Sainte Roseline’s one thousand year-old terroir is a haven where ancient and contemporary art thrive in harmony with the art of vinification.
It all began around a generous water source – and we know, through the novels of Giono and Pagnol, the importance of water in Provence; its presence led a hermit named ROUBAUD to retire here in the middle of the tenth century.
In 1994, Bernard Teillaud took the future of this wonderful estate into his hands with the intention to make it one of the gems of southern viticulture while turning it into an artistic destination.
The abbey was completely renovated under the leadership of architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, who was able to preserve its nobility. Bernard Teillaud asked him to redesign the interior of the Château without altering its historical features.
In 2007, Aurélie Bertin Teillaud (Bernard’s daughter) took over management of this beautiful estate, intent on investing as much as possible into the pursuit of quality and the search for a distinctive yet genuine personality for each of the vineyard’s wines.
Being immersed in culture (both of the mind and of the soil), this exceptional place inspires meditation and contemplation, and is an invitation to taste and conviviality around a highly refined palette of Côtes de Provence reds, rosés and whites.
