CHÂTEAU MOULIN DE VIGNOLLE

Château Moulin de Vignolle is my family legacy et gets its name from the water mill on my estate and from the location’s name “Vignolle”. My uncle operated the vineyard when my parents, my sister, and I joined the estate. In 2004, I became the owner, and today the vineyards are planted over 34 hectares, of which 25 hectares are red varieties, and 9 hectares are white varieties. This profession requires energy and hard work, but there is nothing else I would rather do! I have always tried to protect and respect nature, therefore I converted my vineyard to organic farming in 2013.
