The history of Château Montaud begins 2000 years ago with the exploitation by the Romans of silver veins, and the settlement of their families in this beautiful valley at the foot of the Moors. Traces of their presence were thus found through the existence of a hillside water reservoir, a cellar and its press, a mill, a fort and other objects of everyday life.
Over the centuries, a castle appeared, then was destroyed and rebuilt several times, according to the very eventful history of Provence.
The current version of the castle dates back to 1858. It is a mixture of Florentine and Provençal inspiration, but it still houses the cellar and the chapter house which date back several centuries. This is where the Ravel family lives and works, close to this unique Provencal terroir.
Installed on long terraces bathed in sunshine, the vineyard of Château Montaud shelters various Provencal grape varieties: Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, Syrah, Rolle and Sémillon. On 80 hectares sheltered from the Moors, the viticulture is traditional and the work of the land is privileged. This in order to preserve the freshness of the thin soils, forcing the vine to root very deeply.
Built about 40 years ago, the cellar has evolved perfectly over the years, now equipped with modern tools, essential for the elaboration of quality wines. Today, the Château's wines, bottled in its cellars, are exported all over the world. These vintages are praised by the international press, whether they are stamped Côtes de Provence or varietal wines (such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon and other Tibouren).
