Château Viranel is a family wine estate based in Cessenon sur Orb. We have been wine producers for five centuries, and we are passionate about our grapes. The rich terroir of our wine estate, with its clay-limestone, grés (schist and sandstone) and rolled pebble soils, makes it possible for us to offer you AOC wines from Saint Chinian. Château Viranel winemakers Nicolas and Arnaud Bergasse have chosen a responsible farming approach, for IGP wines produced with respect for the land. The southern wines offered by our vineyard are declared as Appellation Origine Contrôlée in Saint Chinian. Whether you are looking for red AOC wines from Saint Chinian, gastronomic rosé wines or Mediterranean white wines, Château Viranel has the right wine for you.
An independent winemaker, Château Viranel grows its vines in the heart of the scrubland on different soil types. The rolled pebble soils provide suppleness and roundness, for fruity IGP [Cessenon] wines. Our range of southern wines is complemented by AOC Saint Chinian grape varieties grown on our limestone terraces and on the Crès. These soils give our wines rich, complex and elegant aromas. All our wines are produced using responsible vine-farming methods.
