Château Fargueirol belongs to the Révoltier family, owner-harvester from father to son since 1340. It is located in the heart of the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. Our vineyard consists of 27 hectares including 13 hectares on one of the best soils of the appellation, the alluvial terraces dating from the Quaternary era, also called “rolled pebbles”, located around the castle, 10 ha in clay-limestone terroirs of old scrubland replanted during the decades 1980/1990, 6 hectares in Côtes du Rhône and 2 hectares in country wine currently at rest. Our ideal location benefits from an exceptional terroir and our vines being in full force of age, give our wines tradition and character.
We would like to ensure ourselves the entire process of elaboration of this living material that is wine. Work in the vineyard, in the cellar or commercial is in no way delegated, only seasonal workers complete during the peaks of activity (harvest and pruning). We are a family property rooted in the “country”, with a love of profession and tradition. We perpetuate ancestral methods: manual and meticulously sorted harvesting, vinification respectful of tradition and our family know-how while using modern techniques because we have always appreciated “effective” innovation.
We thus offer great Châteauneuf of guard and terroir, interesting from their youngest ages but suitable for long years of conservation.
