Located between the vineyards and scrubland near the village of Saint-Laurent-de-la-Cabrerisse, about thirty kilometres southeast of Narbonne, the Ch\u00e2teau Les Palais vines are planted in the Central Corbi\u00e8res: the location is the Ch\u00e2teau\u2019s best asset. The vineyard has been active for more than 11 centuries. Since 1820, it belongs to the Volontat family.


The property was home to an old Priory called \"Palatio, domus Sanctae Mariae de Palacio\". The title, which confers a fabulous charm to the vineyard, is also at the origin of its franchised name of Ch\u00e2teau Les Palais. Its vault, located where the old chapel used to be, inspires curiosity and discovery.

Anne and Xavier de Volontat grow and harvest the traditional grape varieties of the Corbi\u00e8res (Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourv\u00e8dre) on an area of 130 hectares, 110 of which are certified Protected Designation of Origin. 


The family achieves consistent quality with great care, patience, and effort. During each harvesting season, they wait for the exact moment when the grapes are perfectly ripe. It is a real time challenge for Anne and Xavier, as the grapes cannot be picked too early or too late! The different grape varieties are then vinified separately and with great care.
