The history of the château illustrates the ongoing relationship between the vineyard and a long line of wine growers on an exceptional terroir. Located in the commune of Meyreuil and just four kilometres from Aix-en-Provence, the old bastide of the Grands Carmes d'Aix monks, now the Château Simone, has been in the hands of the Rougier family since 1830.

Old documents bear witness to the fact that vines have been cultivated here from time immemorial. The historic reputation of its wines has made Château Simone a prime example of the Provençal terroir. Their renown spread and the bottles, with the elegant classical presentation on the original label, found their way to the most prestigious tables and those of the finest gourmets.

The rosé wines have a strong ruby-red colour with amber lights. They are vigorous and known for their body, their finesse, and the delicacy of their fruit.
