Château de Raissac

In Puech Cocut, the cuckoo’s hill, erected on the traces of a Roman villa, the neo-classical style castle represents the triumphant viticulture of 19th century. The castle, erected on a Roman site, has remained in the same family since 1828. A family of “artistic viticulturists ” outside the norms. The ambiance is Arty and the decor neo-classical at the Viennets’. Christine is a ceramicist of international renown; Jean is a painter of great talent; his works cover the walls of the salons. Their son Gustave babies the 30 hectares of a noble vineyard. In the castle, his wife Marie manages the five new and superb rooms and the table; she receives guests with exquisite grace. Raissac is a seductive place full of charm and fantasy. The wines are witty also: Cuvée Belmont, syrah and grenache, soft and silky, is very successful in New York. Very expressive wines cultivated in a winemaking plant of the 17th century dug in the rock, unique in Languedoc. Visit of the vineyard and tasting in the cellar. Château Hostellerie open all year.
