For a true taste of the Sainte-Victoire wine region, in which flora and fauna cohabit in perfect harmony, get ready to explore the Sentier des Vignes (Vineyard Trail) for a better understanding of the philosophy here at Château Gassier.
Situated at the foothill of this mountain that was much loved by Paul Cézanne, Château Gassier offers so much more than just guided tours of its vineyards. Our original vineyard trail aims to increase awareness of our incredibly rich biodiversity whilst offering a 360° view of life in the vineyards. Visitors will get the chance to learn not only about the extraordinary diversity of life in the vineyards at Château Gassier but also to educate themselves on the importance of preserving biodiversity.
This almost 3 km long trail is accessible to all and interspersed with educational signposts and panels. There are twelve of these signposts that will educate you on the flora, fauna and geology of the Sainte-Victoire wine region as well as the vine’s growing cycle, organic cultivation practices, varietals and vinification techniques. They offer a global vision of life in the vineyards at Château Gassier and a closer look at its environment.
