At the heart of the Valley of the Rhone, 10 minutes from ChÃÂ¢teauneuf du Pape, ChÃÂ¢teau Gigognan is the heir of a deeply rooted history that dates back to the time of roman colonisation.
A spiritual and temporal lordship: The estate quickly becomes a fiefdom which formed a principality with ChÃÂ¢teauneuf du Pape and BÃÂ©darrides, one governed by the archbishops of Avignon.
During the 17th and 18th century, the administration of Gigognan was entrusted to Lords from Provence by the archbishops of Avignon. Its prosperity gave it the title of a village with the rank of a municipality.
Since 1996, the castle knows a true rebirth thanks to a local entrepreneur. Having been completely renovated, it was given back the charm of the great manors of Provence.
In 2012, a new team of expert professionals is brought together. The vineyard knows an unprecedented renewal and is the object of investments to reinforce the excellence of the estate's wines.
