Located 15mn North of Aix-en Provence, the vineyards of Val Joanis benefits from high altitude (500-600 m) and sunny exposure. They enjoy a particularly favorable microclimate with late ripening giving the wines freshness and balance.

The exceptional site includes remarquable gardens and a 16th Century house built on the old Roman site.
