Château la Martinet is now gaining a second wind under the leadership of the Russian Alexei Dmitriev. Located in the central part of the Var department, it has an excellent potential due to its natural location. Vineyards are broken in the environment of woods abounding with game, meadows with fragrant grasses and a full-flowing river Arzhan. The goal of the new master was "the revival of the original character and magic of this unique place, its orientation towards the future, without damaging or distorting its nature, without violating local traditions." In his property is also the neighboring farmstead of Prieure Saint Marie Vieil and its vineyards.
Vineyards Chateau La Martinette by 2012 were in a very poor condition. Most of them could not be restored and a decision was made to uproot the old vines and plant them with new ones. All this is planned to be done not immediately, but in several stages. In addition, papers have been submitted for permission to build a new wine cellar that can accommodate the wine of future crops. With the support of experienced specialists and eminent consultants, not only the gradual revival of the vineyards, but also the production of wines from the harvest of the remaining vineyards. In general, the program for the revival of the Château la Martinette is scheduled to be completed by 2021.
