Producer Information: Chateau de Beaucastel

Chateau Beaucastel was first planted by the Popes in the early 14th Century. The de Beaucastel family bought this land 200 years later. It was passed to the Perrins by marriage early in the 20th century.

The unique terroir was created by violent shifts, freezing and melting of lands that now form the Rhone valley. Large stones, or 'galets', litter the vineyards and serve to maintain high night temperatures later in the season. This affords a great depth and spice to the red but Beaucastel is also noted for its resolve to conserve and use in the blend the 13 varieties for which Chateauneuf is noted. Beaucastel is one of the pioneers of organic farming, a project that began way before its time in the 1950s.
