SAINTE VICTOIRE
Owned by the Sumeire family, the sunny slopes of Château Maupague extend over the exceptional terroir of Sainte Victoire mountain. The etymology of the name "Maupague" (meaning "giving little"), and the geological characteristics of the soil make this property particularly well-suited for viticulture.
