Fine Wines from Languedoc and Rhône Valley
At the origin of Château Tourril is an ancient gallo-roman signal tower located on the top of a hill in Languedoc proving the 2000 years history of the wine estate since roman Antiquity. The 16 hectares family vineyard is nested in a clay-limestone corrie surrounded by Mediterranean “guarrigue” that protects the vines from dominant winds and frost. It lays between the famous 1000 years old fortified city of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi, both on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. Well shone upon and drained by rainwaters, it produces high quality AOC Minervois wines from our Syrah, Cinsault, 100 years old Carignan, Grenache and Roussanne grapes.
