About The Event
Between the Estérel and Sainte Baume...Between olive groves and lavender fields...
Located in the heart of the Var, between Lorgues and Draguignan, the estate of rich clay on a limestone bed forms, a natural amphitheatre surrounded by pine and oak trees. The vineyard, spreading over a single entity of 90 hectares, benefits from privileged conditions to produce wines of excellence: a great variety of wine grapes. Roubine signifies a stream in provencal dialect.
Morning painting in the vineyard
Take a lovely creative pause with art instructor Mona who will show you the basics of acrylic and oil technique. You will be painting this wine estate and their surroundings inspired by the autumn colours with guidance of Mona. After morning session and well deserved picnic, you will be immersed into the cellar to do some tasting.
Lunch After the morning’s creations, you will certainly not resist a freshly prepared picnic made using local Provencal products such as cheese, delicatessen, quiche, tapenade and of course Roubine wine.
After a short siesta, you will then dive into the world of production by passing the private doors of the cellar and discover the secrets of making our Crus Classés from the grapes reception through the vinification, until the setting bottle. Finally, you will end the visit with a commented tasting of our Crus Classés, AOC Côtes de Provence.
