In the heart of the Baux-de-Provence PDO, nestled on the southern slopes of the Alpilles, the Château d'Estoublon vineyard covers 17 hectares of organically farmed land. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Marsanne and Roussanne, the great Provençal grape varieties are king, and reveal the essence of this so singular terroir between complexity and freshness.
If our know-how is a constant quest, our teams are working to trace a path where environmental responsibility is combined with a responsibility to transmit and protect the intangible wealth that we have been given. These steps are in line with the conversion of our vineyard to biodynamic viticulture by our Technical Director Anaïs Maillet and our teams in the vineyard.

The vineyardLocated
on the southern slopes of the Alpilles, the vineyard is entirely organic and planted with mature vines. The vines are classified as AOP les Baux-de-Provence. The vineyard is the object of particular attention to make the most of the atypical terroir of the property and to gain in precision in the care given to each vine. Several terroirs have been identified, combining outcropping limestone, clay and sandy-silty gravel. The construction of a new, modern, gravity-fed cellar is also in preparation, to create ever more expressive white, red and rosé wines.



Our story

Located in the heart of the Alpilles mountains since 1489. The estate is a testimony to the passage of men since Roman times, while the current building dates from the 18th century. The Château has been entirely renovated to welcome prestigious guests in its 10 suites, in search of a certain art of living. Château d'Estoublon is one of the great estates of the Baux-de-Provence appellation. It lives to the rhythm of the olive harvest and the grape harvest.

In addition to the roots in the Alpilles foothills, the work of the men reveals the character of the precious liquids born from the contrasts of a wild nature and a constantly perfected know-how. This is where the wines and olive oils of Château d'Estoublon with their exceptional aromatic profile are born. The agriculture is reasoned, organic and respectful. Eight hundred ewes graze the 300 hectares of our estate, guaranteeing a preserved ecological balance and a philosophy resolutely oriented towards the sustainability of our land. Under the technical direction of Anaïs Maillet, we continue our agricultural commitment and our environmental convictions through a conversion to biodynamic farming.

The history of the estate, sometimes peaceful, often marked by wars, confrontations and successive frosts, is intimately intertwined with that of the Baux-de-Provence Valley, of which it is without doubt one of the most remarkable sites. Like this typically Provencal land, deeply rooted in its traditions, the Domaine d'Estoublon has a rich and romantic past, which is directly linked to the eventful history of the town of Baux-de-Provence and to that of a unique terroir in France.
