Château de Jonquières
is a family-owned wine estate. Since its foundation in the 12th century, this château has been handed down from generation to generation without being sold. The vine has been cultivated and wine produced here for centuries - as shown by the silver medal received in 1889 and the exports to Canada in 1870. François and Isabelle de Cabissole moved in in the 80s and (re)built the winery in 1992. In 2014, Charlotte and Clement de Béarn (their daughter and son-in-law) took over and in their turn moved to the domaine to continue the work and valorization of this beautiful terroir.
The Château de Jonquières
vineyards now cover 8 hectares and its annual production is around 20,000 bottles. The vineyards are located in a terroir at the foot of the Larzac plateau. The soil (permeable limestone scree), climate (wide variance between day/night time temperatures in summer) and a naturally measured rainfall, allow the creation of wines of high expression with finesse and freshness.
The vines are worked with respect, the land is ploughed or grassed. Each plot receives tailor-made care according to its age (between 25 and 61 years) and grape variety, no matter whether it is an IGP/ PGI or an AOC. Château de Jonquières
is in the process of converting to organic growing.
