Château de Bellet
Not many people know that the North of Nice is home to its own tiny wine region which produces three unique forms of wine; braquet, folle noire and rolle. The Château de Bellet vineyards have over 70 years of winemaking experience in the region, and were set up by the Barrons of Bellet, a family granted nobility in 1777 by the King of the Sardinian states. The rare grape varieties and sulphurous terrain of this part of the French Riveria make for unique and rich flavors, so wine lovers can be sure to find a new favorite vintage on a visit here. Just a 20 minute drive from Nice city center, visitors to Château de Bellet can enjoy a tour of the stunning vineyards, wine cellar and the historical Bellet chapel which lies within its grounds. The intimate tasting sessions allow guests a full exploration of Château de Bellet’s professionally made products, and make for a charming French afternoon in the countryside.
