Château des Antonins is nothing short of extraordinary. Based in a 13th century convent house that was originally built for the monks of the order of Saint Antoine, this historic property fell into the hands of the Roquefeuil family after the French Revolution. Geoffroy and Martine Roquefeuil took over the estate located on the left bank of the Garonne River in 1985.
Geoffroy and Martine’s son, Antoine, really had no plans of taking over the family business. However, during a year-long stint abroad in New Zealand, he ultimately found his passion for wine and decided to become a vigneron. Upon returning home in 2016, Geoffroy passed away suddenly, leaving Antoine in charge of the prestigious estate. Thanks to the shared know-how of his father, as well as his time learning abroad, Antoine has officially been in charge of the estate since 2021, following the retirement of his mother. All 27 hectares of vines at Château des Antonins are farmed sustainably, and the house style can best be described as traditional-meets-modern in the best possible way.
