Two centuries of history and expertise passed down through the generations within the same family—this is the rich heritage that the Château de Brégançon, situated on the seaside facing the Îles d'Or and nestled in a protected site, eagerly invites you to explore.
In addition to a narrated tasting experience, your visit will be accompanied by guided insights into the Château's history. You'll also gain an understanding of the winegrower's craft and the various stages of the vine's cycles, immersing yourself in the heart of this exceptional estate in the Var.
Historical Context - Acquired in 1816 by the SABRAN family, the Château de Brégançon has a deeper historical lineage as the former fief of the Marquisat de Brégançon. During the era when the Fort of Brégançon served as a military base, the Château cultivated vegetables to supply the fort's needs. Over time, the Château de Brégançon has evolved into its eighth generation of winemakers, with each successive generation leaving an indelible mark on the region's history. Notably, Hermann SABRAN, a key figure among these descendants, played a pivotal role in the local community, founding the Renée SABRAN hospital in Giens. Furthermore, Georges TEZENAS made significant contributions to the establishment of the Crus Classés de Provence, adding another chapter to the Château's enduring legacy.
