Chateau de Beaucastel is a magical place, surrounded by hills planted with vines, hundred-year-old olive trees and truffle oaks. Here nature is blooming, liberated and at ease.
Ancient vines with knotted roots are nurtured in the traditional "gobelet" style in the soil typical of the region, laden with large round pebbles (galets). When the Mistral blows - the legendary wind from the Alps - it whistles down the Rhone Valley cooling the vines and revealing aromas of Garrigue.
It has the Southern accent of those who live here at one with the Mediterranean climate. It's on these ancestral soils, supporting the 13 grape varieties of Chateauneuf du Pape, that each new vintage of Beaucastel is born.
