Château de la Galinière is located at an altitude between 230 and 257 meters above sea level. It is planted on a clay and sand soil with Bauxite that makes it red. The name of the village Château neuf-le-rouge comes from it (“rouge” means red in French). The perfect situation on a well exposed slope subtracts the domain de la Galinière to the mists.
The Corniche of the Cengle and the slopes that it overhangs protects the Domain from the North winds and the two hills situated in front of the slope limit the assault of the Mistral and the winds of the East. Open to the South, the estate enjoys winter sunshine and mild temperatures.
The grape varieties on the estate are Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Vermentino and Viognier. The appellation Côtes de Provence is located in the South of France, in Provence.
It spreads over more than 20,000 hectares on 3 “départements” (districts): Var, Bouches-du-Rhône and Alpes Maritimes. Château de la Galinière is situated east from Aix-en-Provence, in the village of Châteauneuf-le-Rouge, on the Cengle plateau, at the foot-hill of Montagne Sainte-Victoire.
