Tucked away in its own private valley in the ancient village of Correns – the first organic village in France – Miraval covers 500 hectares of land in the heart of Provence. The magnificent Château is set in a cirque surrounded by ancient woods, olive trees, vineyards and abundant water supply. Lush wildlife combines with the beautiful Provencal climate and quality Mediterranean lifestyle to reveal an enchanting oasis. Miraval’s exclusive valley location embodies an exceptional terroir. Terroir is the expression of the soil, the climate and the history of the land – the essence of the wine. At an altitude of 350 meters the vines are privileged to enjoy warm, sunny days and cool nights, bringing freshness and balance to the wines. The natural clay and chalk soils are important in retaining vital water supply while at the same time draining excess water, contributing to healthy grape maturation. Miraval sits at the foot of Via Aurelia – an extensive route built to facilitate Roman expansion in the 3rd century BC – representing centuries of history. Following Celtic settlement and Roman occupation, the property served as host to monastic practice and as home to members of the French Court, appearing in the Registry of Noble Houses in the 14th century. In 1970, the well-known jazz pianist and composer Jacques Loussier took ownership of Miraval, turning it into a recording studio – Le Studio de Miraval. There, a number of famous musicians like Pink Floyd, Sting, Sade, The Cranberries and The Gipsy Kings came to record music. to the heart of the estate as a place dedicated to the arts – music, cinema, theatre, local food and fine wine. The vines are planted in protective terraces. Miraval’s magnificent cascading stone walled terraces have been perfectly restored to their traditional form. The estate is cultivated 100% organically, without using herbicides, pesticides, or chemicals that can enter the vine and affect the evolution of the fruit.
