Imagine enjoying Châteauneuf du Pape and Côtes du Rhône Village wines on a terrace overlooking the Rhone valley in the shade of a century-old plane tree. Come to Château Maucoil to experience an enchanting place outside of time.

Château Maucoil is in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, at the heart of Provence in the south of France. The site’s first occupants were the Romans, who built quarters for Caesar’s legions in Orange. The Château Maucoil’s source and proximity to the Via Agrippa were the reasons for the Romans’ presence here.

Closer to us in time, the archivist of the Orange Nassau family (the Dutch royal family), Joseph de la Pise, who was given the title of Lord Maucoil, inherited the estate. Winemaking goes back to the 17th century here, and we have preserved the parcels of land dating from that time. Other owners, who were no less famous, were to follow, including the Goguet de la Salmonière and Quiot families, who made major contributions to the construction and prosperity of Château Maucoil.

The estate includes 36 hectares of AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 10 hectares of AOC Côtes du Rhône and 8 hectares of Vin de Pays de Vaucluse.
The Château works in partnership with La Cave Lavau in Violès, where other vintages from the region are produced, including northern Côtes du Rhône wines.
A Grenache vine, dating from 1895, is still used.
