Château de Castelnau Picpoul de Pinet

At the gates of the village of Castelnau de Guers, a few kilometers from Pezenas and the Mediterranean Sea, the Domaine de Castelnau has very ancient origins. Possession of the Lords of Guers from the 13th century. A precious heritage lovingly maintained by Beatrice and Christophe Muret, owners of the premises since 1997, thus perpetuating the vocation vigneronne of their ancestors.

One of the oldest Languedoc grapes, the Piquepoul has been growing near the Thau Lagoon for centuries. White is the most common, though both blush and black grapes are to be found. As early as 1618, the botanist J.B. Maniol cited Piquepoul as one of the best known Languedoc grapes in his work “Sylve plantarium”.
