The family estate was created in 1940 and in 1993 Patrice Magni took over the work of his father and grandfather and started running the winery on his own. Today the estate encompasses 11 ha of vines, with 7 ha in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 4 ha in Côtes du Rhône. Part of the vineyards are on the plateau north of Châteuneuf-du-Pape, “Le Bousquet” while the rest are located in the east and south of the appellation close to La Nerthe. Here, the vineyard has a beautiful complexity of soils where red and yellow clays mix with chalk, fine loess and sand.
The vineyards of the Côtes du Rhône are situated next to Château de Beaucastel, just after the limit of the appellation Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Patrice began working early on with a minimal use of treatment products. The harvest is done manually with a drastic grape selection in the vineyards. The estate started its own bottling from the best lots in 1999 for the whites and 2003 for the reds.Technical Information
