Château de Jonquières – one of the oldest family wine estates in Languedoc

Jonquières castle (fr. Château de Jonquières) is a winery in the Hérault department in OccitaniaFrance.

It’s one of the oldest family wine estates in the Languedoc. The Château de Jonquières is a 17th century building listed as a historical monument.

The facades and roofs, including the galleries, the staircase, the terrace, the carved arched door in the park have been the subject of an inscription as historical monuments since February 29, 1964.

In 2014, Charlotte and Clément de Béarn (their daughter and son-in-law) took over the vineyard and winemaking. With nearly eight hectares of organic farmed vineyards, they currently produce around 30 000 bottles of red, white and rosé.

A percentage of their wines are distributed all over France within the traditional restaurant and cellars network, others are exported and the rest are direct sales.
