Vineyard News and Wealthy Wine Owners Rosé in Provence

Unfortunately, there are even more Provençal vineyards that are bought up by larger “consortia”, it is the Provençal rosé wine success that contributes to the fact that there are fewer and fewer family-owned vineyards!

Billionaire Rosé

Ever since 1908, there has been a wine cooperative in the port of Saint-Tropez, but in 2019 it moved out of the port and took the opportunity to modernize the winery. At the same time, the new brand “Torpez” was launched. Friend of the Order then thinks that the brand is misspelled, but that name dates back 2000 years! The name is taken from the legend of San Torpé di Pisa who was martyred in Pisa and whose severed body washed up on the city’s shore 2000 years ago in a boat together with a dog and a rooster. A unique destiny that has given its name to the village of Saint-Tropez.

But back to the present and the wines of the billionaires. In many of Saint-Tropez’s luxury villas, you see small micro-vineyards that can consist of four, five or six rows of vines, and these vineyards are wanted to be protected from further exploitation. The wine cooperative has now gathered 130 different micro-wine growers of 30 different nationalities whose grapes are included in the new Torpez wine Ultimum, which in addition to rosé is also available as white and red wine. ~ Source: La Revue du Vin de France
