About

The 29 ha organically farmed state was originally established in the 15th century as a fortified farm, then as a mansion and a century later as a chateau. The French author Charles Perrault was inspired by the castle and had it in mind while writing Sleeping Beauty. There is a feminine tradition at the Chateau, which continues today through Kathleen Van den Berghe’s ownership and management. Kathleen and her family have a passion for history and wine, as well as a commitment to organic practices and low intervention in the cellar, which embody their natural lifestyle. Their mission is to produce exclusively Cabernet Franc that genuinely reflects the diversity of their site.
