The different grape varieties
The estate is divided into 11 different grape varieties. You can find: Merlot, Bouchalès, Castet, Mancin, Cot, Carménère and many others. These grape varieties allow us to produce organic wines, in white, red and rosé.
At Château de la Vieille Chapelle, we are concerned about respecting the environment and the work of men, in order to guarantee the quality of our wine.
Bio & Biodynamics
Biodynamic viticulture is a work of the land and the vines respectful of the rhythm of the seasons and of natural influences, in order to guarantee the health of the soil, people and animals. We have been certified organic since 2013, and we have had Demeter (biodynamic) certification since 2017. On a daily basis, we do not cease small gestures to preserve our places of life and our environment: short circuit, local supply, organic products, etc.
The Vines of the Future
After a genetic analysis of the vines in 2009, we discovered a very old variety from the southwest: Bouchalès. In 2014, we launched an ampelographic study on 400 vines, and we found 11 grape varieties. Since 2016, we have been working on the “Vignes du Futur” project, the objective of which is to replant old grape varieties, in order to find these forgotten aromas.
