Château de Montmirail

Founded in 1960 by Maurce Archimbaud, the Château de Montmirail is now run by his two grandchildren Philippe and Sylvie, under the watchful eye of their mother Monique Archimbaud Bouteiller. Our vineyard, located between the villages of Vacqueyras and Gigondas, was mostly built by Maurica Archimbaud, who patiently joined 2 estates together: his family estate in Vacqueyras which he inherited from his father and a vineyard in Gigondas which he built from scratch in the 1960s over 20 years, on the slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail. At the start of the 20th century, vines did not grow on the Dentelles de Montmirail. A thermal resort , where Frédéric Mistral and Sarah Bernhardt came to vacation, stood on this beautiful land. Since then, part of the resort has been rebuilt into our winery. Today our vineyard is made up of 24 ha in Gigondas ans 20 ha in Vacqueyras. In July 2020, the estate was certified High Environmental Value.
