The Story

From the 12th century, the history of Château d’Astros has seen a succession of Knights Templar, Malta Knights and a prosperous Marseilles family. This domaine has been doing what it does best now for over 200 years – which is to make great rosé. Current chief, Bernard Maurel, is the 8th generation of his family to live at the Château and makes typically Provençal wines: pale and refreshing with cool, subtle red fruit flavours.
