Pairs with

Château Barbebelle is one of the oldest vineyards in Aix-en-Provence. Spearheaded by fourth-generation winemaker Madeleine Herbeau, alongside her oenologist husband Thomas Benard, the duo’s shared passion for quality, typicity, and precision in their wines are unparalleled. The pair owns and cultivates 45 hectares of vines that enjoy copious amounts of sunshine. 

At Château Barbelle, regional grape varieties are cultivated in clay-limestone soils on hilly slopes favorable to viticulture (and very representative of Provence). The rugged relief ensures good ventilation, and the average altitude of 370 meters provides cool, fresh nights even in the midst of summer. The dry mistral de Provence also makes it easy for Madeleine and Thomas to farm sustainably. Together, 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.
