About the winery
Arriving in Castigno is like stumbling upon the end of the world. The vineyard seems to have been set in an antique garden, with its stone walls and tortured vines reminders of times gone by and of the history of the land.
The Castigno vineyard lives and breathes in a unique micro-climate, between the woods and the rocks, the truffle oaks and the dense garrigue. It is from this wild and preserved nature that the vine draws its concentrated aroma, its uniqueness and its richness.
At times at the mercy of the violent winds and devastating rains, the piercing cold or smouldering heat, at others enjoying the Mediterranean serenity, the vineyard draws its personality from this battle of the elements.
It is a place that is both appeasing and violent, a wild place, an authentic place, dominated by the Château de Castigno, a true relic of the past. Owned by the Order of the Knights of Malta until the French Revolution, the oldest stones of the Castle were erected by the Knights Templar.
It is an original landscape. Paradise regained.
