Description

What sets Calissanne apart is its topography, cliffs and hillside vineyards.
At the heart of the estate, which covers 1,200 hectares (2,965 acres), there are 110 hectares of AOC Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence vines and 60 hectares of olive trees – a single, handsome south-facing expanse of cultivated land.
Calissanne’s five olive groves

At the foot of the hills of Lançon-Provence, facing Estaque, our 60 hectares of AOC Aix-en-Provence olive trees look towards the Montagne Sainte Victoire.
The five south-facing olive groves are planted in limestone scree soils, in a warm dry terroir particularly appreciated by this tree – the very symbol of Mediterranean civilisation.
Our olive groves are traditional plantations, i.e. they are well spaced, so there is little competition between their roots, and the trees flourish.
We have 100 trees per hectare at Calissanne, compared with the French average of 350. This low density ensures high soil vitality. Also, pollination rates are excellent, helping ensure large quantites are produced.
Each plantation is a mix of Calissanne’s varieties:
Aglandau, Salonenque, Pitchouline (10%), Grossanne, Calcutière.
