Abbaye de Valbonne

Presentation

Chartreuse de Valbonne was founded at the beginning of the 13th century, on the site of a Benedictine monastery in the heart of an exceptional forest massif in fallow lands. The Carthusians established vines on the hillsides overlooking the monastery and remained there until 1901. With their departure, the vines disappeared and were only replanted in the 1970s. Today, a little over 17 hectares are cultivated and the Carthusian wine estate is almost rebuilt.
