Château Vignelaure

Château Vignelaure

Domain: Château Vignelaure

Vines have been cultivated on this terroir for over 2000 years. In the late 1960s, Georges Brunet took over the domain, renaming it Vignelaure, in homage to Petrarch’s muse. He is also one of the first to plant Cabernet Sauvignon in Provence, with cuttings from his former Bordeaux château. He produced his first reds in 1970, then rosés in 1992 and the first white wines in 2013. Eloi Dürrbach of Domaine de Trévallon spent two years vinifying at Vignelaure and took inspiration to create his own domain. In late 2007, Mette and Bengt Sundstrom bought the domain and have since converted it to organics. The grape varieties include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Cinsault and Carignan for the reds and rosés and Rolle, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Roussanne and Viognier.
