Chateau de Beaucastel has a long history stretching back several hundred years to 1549 when Pierre de Beaucastel purchased a plot of land in what would become Chateauneuf du Pape. Under the direction of the five generations of the Perrin family, Beaucastel has consistently produced wines of excellent quality, each expressing the characteristics of the terrior.
The current area of land planted with vines by Chateau de Beaucastel, covers 100 hectares, 75 of which are within Chateauneuf du Pape. All thirteen of the historical varieties are grown, harvested and vinified separately and aged for one year in oak.
Beaucastel produces five wines: a red and a white each from Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape and an old vines cuvee of Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc.
