Domaine de Verchant

Surrounding the Domaine de Verchant, the 17- hectare vineyard contains red Syrah and Grenache vines from the Mediterranean, and Merlot, Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot vines from Bordeaux. 10% of the vineyard is devoted to white grapes, with traditional Roussane, Viognier and Vermentino vines. Throughout the estate, old vines rub shoulders with more recently planted ones, and we have adopted the double cordon “Royat” pruning associated with wooden post trellises.One of the oldest wine growing regions in the world with a history going back to the Greeks. These are hot climate wines – rich, spicy reds (from Mourvedre, Syrah, Grenache grapes), full-bodied rosés and some dry whites.

The architecture of Domaine de Verchant Relais & Châteaux embodies the South of France’s grandeur; 200-year-old white stone walls, orange tiled roof and palm-tree-covered terraces. This impressive villa also houses a 10,000-bottle wine cellar. The region is known for crisp white wines, for which the hotel’s Mediterranean food menu is perfectly complementary.
