A Tradition in Provence since 1848

Pas du Cerf is a family owned estate that has exisited for eight generations. Today, Genevieve and Patrick Gualtieri and their daughters Aurore, Diane, and Marion are carrying on the family tradition with the same love of the land and Provence. Patrick is in charge of the vineyards, Genevievieve of public relations, Aurore and Marion of sales, and Diane in the cellar.

An Exceptional Terroir

In the heart of the Maures forest, in the Village of La Lande, in the valley which houses the 700 hectares of the estate, the vineyards extend over 80 hectares. Planted on south facing hillsides with a schistous soil. Grape varieties in the vineyard include Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Tibouren, Carignan, Mourvedre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Roole, Semillon, and CLairette, adapt perfectly to the Mediterranean climate. Their roots dig deep in the soil to draw all the minerality from this unique terroir, giving the wine a great elegance. The rest of the estate benifts from a biodiversity that is very favorable to the vines. While taking time to walk through the hills of oaks, one realizes so much that the flora and fauna seem at once to stay up and feed of its strength the silent magic which takes place in the heart of the vineyard.
