Interesting winery with an interesting history. The wines are good, we had others we liked better in the Bellet region, but the views are beautiful. Knowledgeable staff in the tasting room and worth the stop if you are in the area.

We were the on the last tour of the afternoon (4pm) which proved to be the perfect time to visit. The winery offices are housed in an old family chapel (which has been de-commissioned) on the estate of the Bellet family who sold the venue a few years ago. The tour of both the vineyards and the winery were most informative however the actual activity takes place in August. NOTE: Although a short drive from downtown Nice, know that the road leading to winery is QUITE NARROW AND WITH MANY CURVES. If you are not accustomed to such driving (or have a large car or van) I would make other arrangements.

Took bus 62 from Nice ("Massenet" outside Hard Rock Cafe). Buy your one way ticket from the bus driver at €1.50 (cash). Journey is 45mins.

Google walking map after dropping off at Chemin Saquier is not accurate. As there is no clear walking signage, "lookout" for the chapel roof as you follow your google map and head toward the direction where your eyes can see.

It was very quiet. Perhaps it's still low season. I pretty much have the entire estate to myself. They allowed me to roam freely around the vineyard.

Wine tasting €20 is only available in the afternoon at 2,3&4pm. I was there at 11am so couldn't add much to that. Despite that, the lady was nice enough to pour me 2 different white vintages. I bought Baron G which exudes an interesting & complex taste. I also bought the more expensive La Chapelle which was not available for tasting due to its limited quantities.

The return trip is pretty much the reverse of how you got there.

The rest is history. Enjoy your trip!

ps. There is no cafe or vending machines to buy coffee or water. Make sure you have your breakfast and bring a bottle of water.

At 40 euro per person for this tour, I left really disappointed. The tasting of three wines was insufficient. And the tour is very boring and for beginners. I don't recommend visiting. Too many other great wineries in the area.
