Domaine du Dragon

Domaine du Dragon is a family owned winery nestled in the forested hills just west of Saint-Tropez, in the south-eastern Provence region of Draguignan. The latter takes its name from folklore of resident bishop, Saint Hermentaire slaying a dragon and saving the townspeople. Read more...  

The Vineyards

The estate spreads over 24 hectares of south-facing terraced vineyards on enviable terroir across the hills. The soils are unusually rich in clay-limestone which, combined with the higher altitudes and gentle breezes that brings, lend energy and character to the wines. Many of the vines were replanted in the 1990s, while the cellars were modernised at the same time. The Domaine is in its third year of conversion to being fully organic, and all grapes are hand-harvested.

The Wine

Trésor is their top rosé, with a draconian selection of grapes undergoing a gentle first press, it shows fantastic tension and some structure – there’s no doubt this is a gastronomic wine but it will be difficult not to forget about dinner and carry on sipping.  Only 500 cases are produced.
