Nikki Clarke, wine ambassador visits Chateau Saint Martin

I have recently returned from a special visit to The Chateau De Saint Martin, a historic estate in Provence with 50 hectares under vine.

As a lifelong friend and client of Charles Mitchell Wines, it was a wonderful opportunity to experience first hand the rich history behind one of their award-winning producers. The 2016 Grand Reserve Rose is much adored by the guys at Charles Mitchell Wines and after sampling it amongst the vines on the estate I do have to agree with them.

There is something quite romantic and enchanting about experiencing the true authenticity of the grape right from where it was born and meeting the people on site that makes the process a reality so that you and I can drink this nectar with family and friends.

The estate has been run by the same family since 1740 and is currently run by Adeline de Barry who took over from her mother in 1996. I did have the great pleasure of meeting Comtesse de Gasquet briefly and what an incredible lady she is.

After touring the vineyards and the cellars it was time for bed, the estate operates as a Chambres d’Hotes too. My bedroom was quite exquisite and I have since been informed that their rooms were used in the 2006 movie version of Lady Chatterley, no wonder I slept so soundly.
