Located in the Southern Rhone Valley the history of Château Cabrières dates back to the fifteenth century although the modern era for the winery begins when it was purchased by the Arnaud family. The estate takes its name from one of the lieux-dits where there vines are planted, Cabrières.
Prior to 1955, the harvest was sold to negociants but since then Château Cabrières has produced, bottled and sold their own wines.
Château Cabrières has 20 hectares of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape. Two of which are reserved for the production of this delightful Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc. The terroir of gravel, sand and round quartz pebbles in the soil is typical and helps the vines resist the Mistral and drying mediterranean air.
Château Cabrieres is one of the few Chateauneuf du Pape houses to plant 13 allowable Rhone grape varieties. The combination of 3 distinctive terroirs and 13 varieties allows them to produce a large variety of wines.
Vines vary in age, the oldest Grenache vines being more than 100 years old.
