About Chateau Miraval
Tucked away in its own private valley in the ancient village of Correns – the first organic village in France – Miraval covers 500 hectares of land in the heart of Provence. Hence, the magnificent Château resides in a cirque surrounded by ancient woods, olive trees, vineyards, and abundant water supply. While lush wildlife combines with the beautiful Provencal climate and quality Mediterranean lifestyle to reveal an enchanting oasis.
Despite what you’ve read in the tabloids, the Pitts have not sold the sprawling estate and the Perrins are firmly running the show. But the real stars are the sun-drenched vines planted in protective terraced plots. So, at around 1,150 feet in elevation, are surrounded by oaks and garrigue, and cleansed by a constant Provençal breeze. The soils are rich in clay, chalk, and most critically, limestone, which delivers a prodigious mineral vein
Since the exclusive valley location of Chateau Miraval embodies an exceptional terroir. While Terroir is the expression of the soil. But the climate and the history of the land is the essence of the wine. Therefore, at an altitude of 350 meters, the vines enjoy warm, sunny days and cool nights. Hence, bringing freshness and balance to the wines.
Most notably, Chateau Miraval is a joint venture between Famille Perrin and Hollywood A-listers, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
