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. 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 without using herbicides, pesticides, or chemicals that can enter the vine and affect the evolution of the fruit. At Miraval, all grapes are carefully hand picked and hand sorted once they have reached desired maturity, ensuring premium selection. Since 2012, the owners of Miraval have partnered with Famille Perrin to help with the viticulture, winemaking and wine distribution. As one of the leading French wine producing families, Famille Perrin is experienced in producing high caliber wines. With investments in the latest winemaking technology and a passion for excellence at every stage of production, Miraval is dedicated to delivering top quality wines to international acclaim.
