Chateau Maïme

Our estate is rich in archaeological and religious remains.
Its name "Maïme" means Maxime in Provençal, comes from the chapel on the property, built in the middle of the Middle Ages, dedicated first to Saint Maxime, then to Sainte Maxime, protector of cultures, and the eponymous name of the neighbouring town.

the family

"The story of Chateau Maime is one of promise."

The Sibran and Garcia families dreamed about it, and this dream became reality 20 years ago when we decided to revive a vineyard in the very heart of the Côtes de Provence appellation around a rustic bastide surrounded by oak and cypress trees.
As time went by, we revealed the richness of this terroir whose great potential we saw and which has never disappointed us.
Jean-Louis Sibran, a graduate in oenology-viticulture, manages the estate and his cousin Brice Garcia, a graduate in communication, has given Château Maïme its visual identity.

For the love

of Vine

From the original sixteen hectares, we have created the wine we had hoped for. The results were immediate, since by 1998 our rosé wine was already making a name for itself in Paris and on the Côte d'Azur.
Advised by the great oenologist Jerôme Paquette, we have selected for each plot the grape varieties best suited to our terroir to bring out the best aromas and produce harmonious blends that have been praised by leading French and foreign journalists (Robert Parker in particular).

For the love

of Provence

"Born of our simple will, Château Maïme was built with the audacity and desire to work for the best."
We first settled at the foot of the Massif des Maures, on the hillsides bordering the Argens, on the very spot where, nearly two millennia ago, the Roman legionnaires planted the first vines and produced the first rosé wine, on the banks of the famous Aurelian Way. We have patiently replanted local grape varieties recommended by the appellation, respecting the soil and the surrounding nature.
The property now consists of two neighboring entities of each twenty hectares, backed by the same hill, one at a place called “la Maïme” with its micaschist soil, the other on the heights of Saint Jean with its rather sandstone soil. and sand.
