Château Beaubois

The origins of the estate’s name date back to the Middle Ages. In the thirteenth century, the monks at the Cistercian abbey of Franquevaux noticed the exceptional quality of the soil in a hundred hectares of magnificent pine and oak forest.

Small parcels from small vineyards, located 15 miles from the Mediterranean Sea, the terroir is heavily dominated by clay and limestone that are key to the Southern French style of wine. Not only this, but surrounded by the ponds of Petite Camargue, Beaubois also enjoy a unique climate of particularly cool nights and hot, dry days. With so much to shout about their vineyards (each of which they have named like their children), it is no surprise that they maintain the highest level of biological care over them, holding the ’Agriculture Biologique’ Qualification since 2004.
