Built on the foundation of a Roman mausoleum

Most recently purchased in 1999, the entire Château de Palayson estate has had extensive renovation and restoration. During the process, ruins were unearthed that include the ancient walls of the Roman Villa Palaio, dating back to ca. year 200BC, and the foundation of a Roman mausoleum from the beginning of the first century.

Additionally, there are twin chapels from the 11th century, the beautiful château and the wine caves that were converted from the estate’s time as a monastery. Adding to its incredible beauty, formal gardens have been created throughout the grounds of Château de Palayson. Recent renovations have also included the estate’s luxury Villa Palaio that is available for rent.

Our wine caves have been updated to include the latest in new equipment and technology. Château de Palayson is receiving international recognition and awards for our wines and we are included in Le Guide Hachette. Our goal is to produce the highest quality wines based on traditional methods and respecting the natural elements of the the vineyard. Our grapes are biologically farmed.

Mornings are peaceful with the sounds of nature and the occasional distant din of a tractor working in the vineyard fields.
