Home of 'Whispering Angel' Provence rosé


Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, 25 kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times, during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus.
The chateau’s cellar structure or foundation (known today as the oldest in the region) housed an original Chateau that was given by the Comte de Provence to Gérard De Villeneuve, in 1201. The current chateau, inspired by Tuscan Villa design, was built during the mid 19th century.
