Located in the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the heart of Provence, the site was first inhabited by the Romans who established a settlement here due to the discovery of a natural spring, later known as ‘La Source de Château Maucoil’. The spring is close to the Via Agrippa, the Roman road between Lyon and Marseille. The Château and the surrounding historical vineyards were purchased by Guy Arnaud, who already owned the Château Cabrières, also in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, at that time. Since his daughter, Bénédicte Arnaud-Bonnet, and her husband Charles took over the Château in 2009, they produced wines with their ‘independent wine grower’ spirit and have kept raising the standard. Now the Château Maucoil and the Château Cabrières, owned by his another daughter, Agnès, share the same management.
