The Centuries-Old History of Château Capion

The initial construction of the Château Capion estate dates back to the sixteenth century. The Keittinger family has been running the winery for generations. The castle and the gardens are completely surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and forests, on an area covering more than 45 hectares. A stream from the Cevennes, the Gassac can also be seen on the estate.

The Southern France Terroir of Château Capion

The soils of the vineyard are made of sandstone, Montpellier clays, and limestone gravels, sometimes built on terraces. The geology expert Claude Bourguignon has been helping the winemakers of the Château Capion winery for several years to produce high-quality wines. In the vineyard, no machinery is used, to create a greater complexity and encourage a more precision in the selection of the grapes. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault are grown for red wines and Viognier, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Clairette and Grenache Blanc are grown for white wines. The average age of the vineyards at Château Capion is 30 years old, which create wines with richness and compexity while retaining fresh fruit flavours.
