Private Whispering Angel Estate Experience
From the heliport in the town of Saint Tropez, depart for the famous Chateau d’Esclans, one of France’s biggest producers of rosé and enjoy a tour, wine tasting, and meal. The Chateau and grounds were purchased and transformed into a vineyard by Sacha Lichine, the son of renowned wine writer Alexis Lichine who also owned Château Prieuré-Lichine winery in the Bordeaux region, and was aide de camp to Eisenhower in World War II. Dine in Monsieur Lichine’s home with a gorgeous farm-to-table meal made with fresh ingredients from local Provencal farms.
After enjoying the many comforts onboard your luxury yacht charter, dock in the famed town of Saint Tropez, known as a summer playground for the rich and famous. Whether it is your first trip to Saint Tropez or your latest trip, enjoy the many galleries, Annonciade Museum, Provençal market, designer boutiques, and celebrated restaurants and nightlife venues. After time spent enjoying this lively French coastal city, avoid the summertime traffic by heading to the town’s heliport to embark on your trip into Provence! Your destination? The famous Chateau d’Esclans is found on an exceptionally elevated site just about 30 miles north of St. Tropez.
Besides the convenience of escaping the seasonal traffic, your helicopter ride will allow for an amazing chance to enjoy St. Tropez and the changing French landscape from above. Leave the stunning coastline and head into Provence where you might catch a glimpse of the lavender fields in season and watch as the gorgeous vineyard fields and the beautiful chateau come into view. Once on the ground, explore the lovely grounds of Chateau d’Esclans and discover its old Grenache vines, which produce grapes that offer a greater concentration of flavor than the younger vines.
On property, meet Sacha Lichine, a top contributor to the unprecedented growth within the Rosé category and the son of renowned wine writer, Alexis Lichine who also owned Chateau Prieure-Lichine winery in the Bordeaux region, and was aide de camp to Eisenhower in World War ll. Sacha acquired Chateau d’Esclans in 2006 and felt that Rosé had strong opportunities to be served, celebrated, and consumed more broadly. This exceptional foresight resulted in building world-class brands such as Whispering Angel, Rock Angel, Chateau d’Esclans, Les Clans, Garrus, and The Palm by Whispering Angel.
After ending a marvelous tour enjoying fine local wines, you will have the opportunity to dine in Monsieur Lichine’s home with a gorgeous farm-to-table meal made with fresh ingredients from local Provencal farms, tailored to your unique preferences and tastes. Say goodbye to this beautiful site and return to your yacht with the Mediterranean Sea and sunset views ahead of you.
