Provence

Château Vignelaure, Rians
This flagship Coteaux d’Aix estate was planted in the 1960s with cuttings from Médoc third growth La Lagune. César, Miró and Buffet are in the art collection. vignelaure.com

Château La Coste, Le Puy-Ste-Réparade
With buildings by renowned architects and a trail incorporating 20 pieces by sculptors like Calder, Goldsworthy and Serra, this is an art- (and wine-) lover’s treat. chateau-la-coste.com

Château Léoube, Bormes-les-Mimosas
Taken over in 1998 by Sir Anthony Bamford (of construction firm JCB and Daylesford Organic), this estate is worth visiting for its organic wines and seaside setting. chateauleoube.com

Mas de Cadenet, Trets
Seventh-generation vignerons Maud and Matthieu Negrel make terroir driven wines on their estate at the base of Cézanne’s beloved Montagne Ste- Victoire. masdecadenet.fr

Clos Mireille-Domaines Ott, La Londe-les-Maures
Developed by the Ott family since the 1920s and now 60% owned by Champagne Louis Roederer, Clos Mireille makes classy (if pricey) wines. domaines-ott.com

Château de Chausse, La Croix Valmer
Self-taught winemaker Roseline Schelcher is the force behind this 15ha estate tucked between forest and coast. Her vibrancy and charm spill into the wines. chateaudechausse.fr
