Château Beaulieu is among the most famous estates in the Coteaux d’Aix-enProvence appellation.  The estate comprises 180 hectares of vines which lie at an altitude of 400 meters, in the heart of an ancient volcanic crater.  The vineyards have been farmed on this land since Roman times, although the Château itself was built as a stronghold for the French King Henry III in 1576.  Today, with 140 hectares of vines planted in the heart of the immense crater of the extinct volcano, the “Trévaresse”, at an altitude of 400 metres, is one of the most expansive domains in the region under the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence appellation.  The location, which faces the renowned Provencal region of the Lubéron, overlooks the Durance valley, the Abbey of Silvacane and the Roque d’Anthéron, and offers a perfectly diversified ”terroir” well suited to vine growing.  Château Beaulieu puts all its energy, know-how and exacting standards into giving pleasure and emotion to its clients through great wines from Provence that are bursting with sunshine.
