Chateau D’ Aqueria

Côtes du Rhône | Tavel | Lirac
*For three generations now, the Olivier family has owned and run Château d’Aqueria. Jean Olivier, a PhD in Law, purchased the estate in 1919. His son-in-law Paul de Bez began managing the estate in 1943, followed by his grandsons Vincent and Bruno, who today continue to run the magnificent château.
98 hectares of land of which 68 hectares are vineyards, planted on a single tract of land surrounding the Château.

Château d’Aqueria begins in 1595, when Louis Joseph d’Aqueria purchased this area of Tavel known as “Puy Sablonneux” from the monks at the Abbey in Villeneuve les Avignon. This was choice land for vine-growing. His son, Robert d’Aqueria, hereditary Count Palatine, built a home which was transformed in the 18th century into the Château as it stands today.

True Châteaux are rare in the Rhone Valley. Aqueria is indeed a fascinating, amazing home, due in part to its construction oriented east to west. The Château reflects the graciousness of the 18th century, with its façades embellished with horns of plenty, symbolic of the exceptional land. It is built up against a small grove of pine, which shelters it from the Mistral wind and the torrid summer weather.
