The history of the estate
Steeped in Provencal history, our estate is named for the rock castle that was built into the nearby mountainside centuries ago. Archeological findings in the area signal that in ancient times, this region was a place of wine trade. Remnants of this building are still visible on our property. It was only in the 1970s that the Cheylan family acquired this estate, which at the time was abandoned. Since then, our winegrowers have worked tirelessly to make quality wines from the grapes grown here on our property. It is this love of the land and our artisanal expertise that have made Château Virant one of the most important wine producers in Provence. Today, the estate is a major player in the region, earning many awards and distinctions. Any of our red, white or rosé wines perfectly conveys our philosophy: We strive to make quality wines accessible to everyone. The wines that you will find here perfectly represent this concept. Our wines contain astonishing aromatic palettes. They are ideal to be enjoyed daily as a compliment to a meal or as an aperitif. If you are interested in learning more about wine, our eponymous offerings will serve as the perfect foundation for any wine tasting.
