In the 2000s, Marie-Pierre Caille decided to settle in the south of France. This inhabitant of Lyon, who had spent many years working in the communication sector, wanted to invest in a "full-scale" project. It was in Var, in the sun of Provence, that she fell in love with the rich history of the Château Mentone and its hectares of vineyards and forest.
In 2003, helped by her father, she took over the running of the estate. Gradually, Marie-Pierre and her family brought the castle back to life in order to turn it into a true wine tourism destination, combining quality wines, buildings filled with charm and history and local produce, all based on a resolutely environmentally-friendly approach.
To achieve this, the Caille family modernised the wine production tool, opened the doors of the almost two century old winery, created guest rooms at the Château, organised evening events and receptions. Together, they have built a new bridge between the past and the future that fully respects the spirit of the site.
