Since the 18th century, the Château Garamache estate has been nestled in the heart of the Sauvebonne valley, a particularly fertile and protected area in the commune of Hyères-les-Palmiers. It is one of the most important estate of the Terres de Ravel, benefiting from an exceptional sunshine and soil.
10 km from the Mediterranean coast, this 60 hectare property, crossed by a river, was originally dedicated to market gardening and sericulture, i.e. the cultivation of silk. Founded by a ship owner from Marseille, it houses a castle with an unusual architecture, half-Victorian, half-Provencal, which stands at the end of a remarkable avenue of plane trees.
Next to it, stands a huge building: La Magnanerie. This is where the magnans used to breed silkworms. Converted into a reception area since 1999, La Magnanerie is now operated by Cécile and Virginie Ravel, who host many private and professional events.
The property's terroir is one of the most privileged with a southern exposure. Here we find the traditional Provencal grape varieties, where Grenache intermingles with Cinsault, where Cinsault combines with Tibouren and Syrah to exalt in a bouquet of extreme richness, the gustatory and aromatic characteristics specific to each of our wines.
