A forward-thinking wine estate in Provence with 200 years of history.

The Mediterranean rosé estate of Château Galoupet has existed on the map since the 18th century as a lieu-dit in French, a term that is used to denote a place or vineyard with its own distinctive topological identity. In this case, a precious Côtes de Provence ecosystem, home to rare heritage species that continue to thrive on the land that now grows high quality rosé wine. Early cadastral maps bear witness to an olive grove, an orchard and pastureland between the plots, as well as a water reservoir carved out of the hillside that still exists today. Cork was once harvested on the ridge from a forest thick with classic vegetation of Provence – holm oaks, stone pines, cistus, arbutus, rosemary, lavender and catmint – while Parasol pines shaded the path from the wine cellars to the coast. An historical map commissioned by Louis XIV and published in the mid-18th century refers to the area as "Le Galoupe" which subsequent cartographers evolved into "Le Galoupet". In over 200 years, the layout of the Estate has remained the same, although the property itself has changed hands 15 times.

A CRU CLASSÉ CÔTES DE PROVENCE SINCE 1955

While archives are incomplete, an early press release praises the terroir wines of Château Galoupet and the emblem of a previous owner celebrates the elemental power of the place: “a blazon of azure with a silver rock rising from the sea accompanied by two crescent moons”. The Provencal rosé wines of Château Galoupet have been acclaimed throughout the 19th century and in 1955, the estate itself gained recognition when it became a Cru Classé Côtes de Provence, one of just 18 in the region.

A TERROIR RESURRECTED

During the 20th century, Château Galoupet came under the management of several different proprietors, nurtured by some and neglected by others. We arrived just in time in July 2019, to revive the soils and promote biodiversity to restore the ecosystem to its previous glory after it had endured challenges such as wildfires. With an unfaltering drive to deliver the finest rosé wine, we knew we had to take action starting from the ground up to ensure its survival and longevity. Today, sustainability and biodiversity are in full throttle at Château Galoupet, Cru Classé Côtes de Provence.
