History and Geography
The vineyard of Château Villerambert stretches over 100 hectares in AOP designation. Gallo-Roman traces which were found around the property lead to believe that the first vines were planted in the 4th century AD.
According to archives, Château Villerambert already owned a vineyard in 1231. Since 1858, 6 generations of the Julien family have successfully run the property, which is part of Vignobles Bonfils estate since 2014.
The Vineyard and its Terroir
Grown on 3 distinct « terroirs », each of one, allied to the meteorological conditions of the year, bringing a specific and individual contribution to each year’s wine.
In an exceptional way, the vines of Château Villerambert are the only vines, worldwide, to grow in marble.
This pink marble comes from a resurgence of the famous marble vein of Caunes Minervois where the Royal quarry was established in 1700 AC. King Louis XIV built famous monuments using this marble as building material, one of the most famous and beautiful monument being the Grand Trianon in Château de Versailles and the grand staircase of Opéra Garnier.
