Château Riotor

Château Riotor is a property in Provence owned by the Abeille family of the noted Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate Château Mont-Redon.

Delightfully situated in the Massif des Maures area about 30 kilometres inland from Saint-Tropéz, the estate has been lavished with care and attention by the Abeilles.

A long programme of renovation and refurbishment over the last three decades in both the vineyards and the cellars has seen quality rise and rise. They have particularly invested in the most up-to-date winemaking equipment, increasing control of temperatures in order to produce top-class wines, particularly the fresh, fragrant rosés made and kept in stainless steel to protect the fruit character.

The 50 hectares of vineyards consist of fairly sandy soil mixed with red schist and are planted with vermentino (here known as rolle), grenache, cinsault and syrah.
