To celebrate this wine synonymous with the glorious summertime, we have chosen not the wine itself, but Rosé Wine Cocktails created by a mixologist from a winery near Saint-Tropez.

In the middle of the property, there is a boutique hotel with a contemporary chic urban design in contrast with the charm of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region.
