The rebirth of a Château…
Thanks to a gorgeous agricultural terroir and a brand new winemaking winery, Arnaud and Elisabeth de Villeneuve Bargemon, aim to new and great ambitions for the future of their estate. The estate was founded in 1802 and has always been run by the family generations to generations. In 2009, they took over the estate from a member of the family, and they always kept the same motto: keep the cultural heritage of the family and perpetuate the agricultural know-how.
Thanks to them, the vineyard has known a huge and a complete reorganization with the construction of a new winemaking cellar and new installations which allow the evolution of the estate whith the help of an oenologist, Gaëlle Remy.
An estate rich of its History
Archeological excavations showed a wine and an olive growing farm with tanks, amphoras and mill which testify the Gallo-Roman era. Since 1530 the estate has been the property of the de Boutiny’s family, ancestors of the current owners.
In 1802 after a family division of the estate, Château les Mesclances expanded on 110 Hectares surrounded by wooded hills. The ancestral vine passion, heritage of the family is growing centuries to centuries. The young generation, with the help of all the family has became worthy successor.
