The Ancient History of Château Bas d’Aumelas

The history of Château Bas d’Aumelas began in the 14th century. In the aftermath of the Hundred Years War, the Aumelas Castle suffered a lot of damage, and in time, it became uninhabitable. In 1595, Monsieur Bonnet, the owner, chose to settle in Château Bas.

Château Bas d’Aumelas, from Pastoral Property to Winery

At that time the activities at the Château were mostly pastoral, but grape-growing and farming were also active on a hillside close to the property. The lord of the Château Bas invested a lot in the building and turned it into a charming castle flanked by two round towers and outbuildings. The family of Albeniz has been the owner of the Château for three centuries. Jean-Philippe and Geoffroy d’Albenas have concentrated all the activities of the property on winemaking. A further highlight of the castle is its French garden that you can rent for seminars and weddings.
