Meet the Producer


Château l'Ermitage was founded in the XIth Century by the hermits of Sainte Cécile d'Estagel Abbay. It is situated on the pilgrimage route of Santiago de Compostella. The estate's total surface covers 80 hectares of sunny south facing vineyards, which benefit from the airy Mediterranean climate. We have a close relationship with owner Jérôme Castillon and he has been instrumental in some of our own wines; Savoir-Faire Mourvèdre is produced from his fruit, but produced by our winemakers in his cellar. Jérôme restricts the use of oak influence as much as possible and new oak is not used. Favouring old oak, he purchases our old oak tronconique fermenters after we have used them at Domaine Boutinot in Cairanne.
