In 1968 - The vineyards were replanted on a large scale with 300 acres (120 hectares) in production.
The vineyard ‘'La Commanderie ‘' is a traditional Provence vineyard that has been dedicated to producing Rosé (90+%) & White (10%) ‘'Côteaux d'Aix en Provence'' of the highest quality for few decades.
