A fun and educational walk from the Château Réal d’Or in Gonfaron, punctuated by meetings with naturalist guides, who will tell stories about the local fauna and flora, with a beekeeper, with the ASL Suberaie Varoise and the cork maker Diam for a workshop around the cork oak, and with a speaker who will talk about the cycle of the vine.

On this course around biodiversity, participants will be provided with a map with a treasure hunt and puzzles that will lead them to meet the winegrowers of the Côtes de Provence Notre-Dame appellation for a tasting of their wines.

Information and registration:

The vineyard of Notre-Dame des Anges is the 5 terroir to have achieved the status of DGC (Denomination Géographique Complémentaire) of the AOC Côtes de Provence in 2019. It is bordered to the south by the Massif des Maures and to the north by the limestone hills and extends over 10 communes of the Var. The DGC bears the name of Notre-Dame des Anges in reference to the highest point of the Massif des Maures visible from all over the territory. It is characterized by a Mediterranean climate with continental influences and by a diversity of soils. This typicity is at the origin of the balance that characterizes the wines of Notre-Dame des Anges.
