Château Canet, a 12th-century Family-run Wine, and Olive Estate
Château Canet is a 12th-century family-run wine and olive estate. Nestled between vineyards, olive groves, and pine forests, it is owned by a Dutch-New Zealand family living in France for 30 years. Located in South France’s Languedoc, the winery shares its passion for wines and the extraordinary way of life in South France. The place has a great history, peace, and beauty that attracts a lot of guests. The old winemaker’s cottages have been converted into holiday homes for guests with all luxury and modern facilities. It is perfect for family gatherings, weddings, or other social events. There are nine cottages in total, and all of them are named after one of their grape varieties. The cottages overlook the pool, tennis court, gardens, and are surrounded by vines and olive groves.
Sustainable Viticulture and Amazing Terroir
Château Canet’s 50 hectares of vineyards are in the center of Balcons de L’Aude of the Minervois region. The terroir here is fantastic with limestone and clayey soil. The vines also benefit from the Mediterannean influence and the Atlantic winds blowing from the North. The winery follows Terra Vitis guidelines of sustainable viticulture. It helps in growing sweet, fruity grapes while protecting the environment and the health of their vineyards for long-term future use. Syrah is the main grape that covers over half of their vineyards. Apart from it, Grenache, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon, Bourboulanc, Muscat, and Roussanne also grow. The best grapes are used to make their award-winning red, white, and rose wines. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy fabulous wines.
