Visit La Nerthe
Visit & Tasting
When you visit Château La Nerthe you are welcomed with refinement and readiness. Our team will be delighted to welcome you for a free tasting of our wines or, by appointment, at 10:30 am, 2 pm and 4 pm every day except Sundays and public holidays if you want to visit our 16th century cellar. A tasting of different vintages follows the visit of the historic cellars.
On the road to Sorgues, take the long driveway through the vineyards to Château La Nerthe (1.5 km). Arriving at the Clos de Beauvenir, you will see the 18th century chateau overlooking the landscape. It is a beautiful building surrounded by its own park, from its terrace you can admire the view comprising a vast expanse of vineyards and the remains of the “City of the Popes” above the village.
You can visit its cellars (which probably predate the 16th century) with their spectacular vats hollowed out of the rock. The private lockers, under the names of great French restaurants, along with the collections of old vintages, covering every year since 1977 and back to 1929, attest to the reputation and to the great aging potential of the wines.
These cellars are also home to wines that are being matured in wooden vats, stone vats and oak barrels.
