Chateau du Rouët lived many lives as a former Knight Templar farm, then a coaching inn... Right before the French Revolution, the castle served as a hunting lodge for a Marquis who decided to grow vines and olive trees on the property. Chateau du Rouët was then acquired in 1840 by the Savatier family who has since maintained ownership. Bernard Savatier has been developing and modernising the estate to its current extension since 1962. Bernard's sons, Martin and Mathieu Savatier, joined the business in the 1990s. The vineyard was established in fire-trenches, and has since contributed to the protection of the surrounding forest. Vines grow 560 meters above sea level, at the bottom of red rock mountains. Chateau du Rouët produces elegant Cote de Provence wines.
