With the Herbeau family at the helm, Château Barbebelle is one of the oldest vineyards in Aix en Provence. Lands cultivated by the Romans, it lies in the heart of protected wildlife between cypress and pine trees. The grape varieties of the appellation are settled on a homogeneous terroir of clayey-limestone slopes on a hilly relief, favorable to viticulture and very representative of Provence. They own and cultivate 45 hectares of vines that enjoy copious amounts of sunshine. The rugged relief ensures good ventilation and the average altitude of the vineyard – 370 meters – gives them cool, fresh nights even in the midst of summer. The dry mistral de Provence makes it easy for them to farm sustainably.

Madeleine Herbeau is now a 4th generation winemaker alongside her husband, Valentin Premmereur, and oenologist Thomas Benard. Their passion for quality, typicity, and precision in their wines are unparalleled. They make a great team, and share the common goal of bringing high-quality, delicious wines that speak to the terroir of Aix en Provence.
