The legendary land, the magical light, the subtle and changing coloring of the landscape and its noble silhouette have made the Sainte-Victoire mountain a source of inspiration for many great artists, one of the most famous of which is the impressionist Paul Cézanne. In addition to its natural splendor, the Sainte-Victoire mountain is also a prime location for vineyards.
The Domaine de Saint-Ser has the rare privilege of being entirely located in the “Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire” area. It covers 33 hectares (82,5 acres) that enjoy ideal geological and climatic conditions.
The vineyard, which grows on a hillside, benefits from extraordinary sunlight thanks to its southern exposure and, in particular, the reverberation of the light of the white rocks of the mountainside.
Sainte-Victoire’s shape makes it possible for the vineyard to escape the summer storms that hit its northern face and unfurl on the neighbouring towns. The argilo-calcareous, rocky and poor soil favors the production of quality grapes and gives the wines their natural suppleness. The Mistral goes around Sainte-Victoire, drying the vines after the rains, purifying the vineyard and contributing to the growth of the grapes.
The Domaine de Saint-Ser has one of the most modern wine cellars of the appellation. Its stainless steel tanks, fully equipped with temperature-control devices, allow our cellar master to prepare top-quality wines.
Les Hauts de Saint-Ser ~ Red – AOC Côtes de Provence
This vintage is only made in exceptional years. It produces a wine with the purest characteristics by blending the two best parcels of the domain’s land. Syrah grapes give it a leathery aroma and tannic roundness, and Cabernet-Sauvignon grapes give it a strong structure and longevity.
Prestige ~ Rosé – AOC Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire
This is the vintage on which the Domaine de Saint-Ser’s reputation was built. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Rolle grapes are what give it an unusually complex aroma since each variety contributes its own personal note.
Prestige ~ Red – AOC Côtes de Provence
This wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet grapes that are harvested when fully mature.

This wine will keep for 6 to 8 years.
Prestige ~ White – AOC Côtes de Provence
Made exclusively from the Rolle (or Vermentino) grape variety harvested just past maturity, this wine is strongly aromatic in a way that is very characteristic of this variety, evoking tastes of grapefruit and pineapple.
20% of the vintage is placed in new barrels, adding a delicate complexity to the bouquet of aromas, leaning towards vanilla
