Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a magical place surrounded by hills dotted with vineyards, ancient olive trees and truffle oaks. Here, nature blossoms. Very old vines with knotted feet stand in the traditional bush-vine style on a floor of solid round stones. When the mistral blows - this legendary wind that comes from the Alps and rushes down the Rhone Valley – you can hear it rushing through the vines and revealing the scents of the scrubland. It is on this ancestral land of 13 grape varieties that the wines of Château de Beaucastel are born every year.
