Chateau Minuty “Prestige” Rose, Provence. France


Château Minuty was purchased in 1936 by the Matton-Farnet family and soon after, the vineyards were completely replanted with a focus on traditional, local grape varieties, painstakingly farmed to produce lower yields. By the 1960s, this quality-led approach had paid dividends as the wines of Château Minuty became a fixture on the lists of the finest restaurants of the Côte d’Azur. A négociant arm was added to the business in 1995, applying their quality-focus and production know-how to a complementary range of branded wines under the Minuty label. This foresight and dedication cemented their position as one of the most-recognised producers in the region, long before the explosion in popularity of delicate, pale rosés that has occurred in recent years.
