The Producer

The history of Château Beauchêne began in the 15th century, when the De Biliotti family arrived in France. The De Biliotti family was one of the many Italian families that followed the Pope into exile in Avignon and then prospered in France. The coat of arms of the De Biliotti family, which has been overlooking the castle for centuries, is now engraved on all of the estate’s bottles. The word “beauchene” means “beautiful oak” and refers to the forest surrounding the main estate.

Château Beauchêne has been passed down through the family for more than 200 years. Michel Bernard (10th generation) was appointed in May 2019 as President of Suze la Rousse, University of Wine, while his daughters, Estelle and Amandine, manage the vineyard and business side of the winery. Amandine is the 11th generation to work at the Château and with three grandsons and a granddaughter. The family’s roots in the region go further back than many other prestigious families in the area. The Perrins (Beaucastel) started in 1909. The Guigals started in 1924.

The family’s estate has been HVE certified (High Environmental Value) as sustainable, recognizing their work in the vineyards. They do not use herbicides or powerful chemicals to produce their wines.
