Today, Madeleine, the winegrower, is here to bring modernity to this estate to the old know-how. Don't rest on your laurels! At the estate, we like to chat with the vines while riding between the rows at dawn! The winegrower dedicates herself privileged moments like this several times a week!

The space available at Château Barbebelle allows the technical teams to plant only on the best plots, those with the most interesting exposure and soil. On the property, we find a clayey-limestone soil that is extremely beneficial for our vines.

The vines are old (with an average of 25 years) and have long roots that allow them to find the best from far away in the soil. We only weed mechanically and do not use chemical weedkillers.

Our story


Before, Château Barbebelle was almost the only property in the area, the whole harvest was sold to the cellar on site. Today, there are 7 cellars in our village alone. It's time to face the competition and find new markets!

As an only child, some people think I was forced to take over Barbebelle's management! Not at all! Disappointed by the marketing in a large agri-food group that was idealized by my business school, I didn't hesitate for long to choose life in Provence! The transition from my father to me is brutal. Imagine, Dad doesn't even know how to use a computer and I'm joining an online community! My strength is that I have followed a quality business training course that gives me confidence in myself and my ability to convince. In addition to that, there is the desire to work hard to make Barbebelle evolve! Today we are 7 cellars in our village alone. It's time to face the competition and find new markets!

Other little stories


For me, being a winegrower means knowing your property by heart. Knowing how to take advantage of each square metre of your land to make this or that vine flourish to produce quality grapes. It also means knowing how to plan for the future and anticipate plantations in an intelligent way (choice of plots to plant, grape varieties, developments...).

Being a winegrower also means mastering 10 professions at once, you must know how to take care of your vines, vinify with rigour and elegance, choose the packaging for your bottles, manage the supply and logistics, sell your wine, manage the accounting, untangle the administrative procedures, manage your teams, invent your own communication agency! All the links in the chain are essential, being a winegrower means knowing your property by heart. Knowing how to take advantage of each square metre of your land to make this or that vine flourish to produce quality grapes. It also means knowing how to plan for the future and anticipate plantations in an intelligent way (choice of plots to plant, grape varieties, developments...). I have complete confidence in our oenologist and I know I can count on him. He started his career at the same time as my father and now he has become one of the best oenologists in the South of France. He advises me as if I were his daughter!
