An organic wine estate on the Provence Wine Route in the Var

Presentation of our organic wine estate in the Var on the Provence Wine Route


The Château de Brégançon was constructed at the beginning of the 18th century on a former Marquisate, of which the Fort, now a presidential residence, was the fiefdom.

Situated on a promontory facing the islands of Porquerolles and Port-Cros, the 42 hectares of vineyards are adjacent to the Château.

The vines are cultivated on a clay-silica soil with a micro-climate and maritime inlets, imparting a subtle character to our wines. To maintain its high standards and level of excellence, the Château de Brégançon has transitioned to organic farming.

A listed site, the property has been in the possession of the descendants of the Hermann SABRAN family for two centuries. Hermann SABRAN, a lawyer from Lyon and administrator of the hospices, originally planned to build a hospital on the Brégançon site in memory of his daughter Renée, who passed away at the age of eight. Due to the site's challenging accessibility at the time, the hospital was eventually constructed on the Giens peninsula.

In 1955, Georges TEZENAS, husband of Marguerite SABRAN, elevated the estate's status by obtaining the title of "Cru Classé," placing the wines of Château de Brégançon among the most recognized in the Côtes de Provence appellation.

In 2011, Olivier TEZENAS, currently overseeing the estate, significantly enhanced it by constructing a state-of-the-art cellar and an elegant tasting room.

In 2020, the estate achieved the organic label for its new vintage, harvested in 2020. The vines, approaching half a century in maturity, are carefully hand-harvested, with manual work prioritized through the practice of reasoned cultivation.

Over seven generations, the same rigorous care and passion have been passed down, guiding the cultivation of the vines, vinification, and maturation of the wines.
