One of the oldest Chateau in the region, Chateau Maucoilâ€™s oldest parts date back to the 1st century, when a Roman legion formed a camp here around a natural spring, today called La Source de Chateau Maucoil. In 2009 the estate began converting to organic viticulture, gaining certification in 2011. Engaging the same techniques as their ancestors, the Bonnets restored their 60 year and 100 year-old-vineyards. With 28ha in Chateauneuf du Pape, they have a 5ha vineyard that consists of a field blend of the AOPâ€™s 13 allowed varietals, and they also own the only maintained (0.5ha) vineyard that was just replanted beside the ruins of the actual Chateauneuf du Pape (â€œPopeâ€™s new houseâ€) that was built in 1320. One of only 15 actual Chateaus in the region, the wines are estate grown and vinified in this historic property. In 2013 the Bonnet family merged Chateau Maucoil with Rhone Valley producers, the Lavau Family.
