The 130 years old winery of Maison Saint Aix is situated in the south of France, just an hour north-east of Aix-en-Provence. With 75ha of vineyard, Maison Saint Aix is one of the largest domains in the famous AOP Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence. Situated on a plateau at an altitude of 420m above sea level. At this special place, the makers of AIX Rosé work year after year with passion and dedication to create the wonderful AIX Rosé.
Location is crucial and conditions in Provence are perfect for making beautiful wine. From mineral rich soils to an ideal elevation; from warm days and cool nights to mistral winds that dry vines on dewy mornings, the AOP Coteaux d’Aix en Provence was made for harvesting the indefectible blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault that combine to build the rich, complex, fruity notes of AIX Rosé.
Maintenance of the vineyard and estate are crucial for the quality of the wine. Every year vineyards in need of regeneration are meticulously replanted. The cellar has also been recently renovated to ensure the highest quality of wine is produced from the northern clay and calcareous soil of the AIX estate. Hard work and significant investments contributed to the creation of AIX, but it was the passion and promise to favour quality above all that has made the dream of this beautiful rosé a reality for wine lovers the world over.
