History of Chateau Miraval – The Art of Rose
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 Chateau 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.
In 1970, the well-known jazz pianist and composer Jacques Loussier took ownership of Chateau Miraval, turning it into a recording studio – Le Studio de Miraval. There, a number of famous musicians like Pink Floyd, The Cure, Sting, Sade, The Cranberries, and The Gipsy Kings came to record music. Today, Chateau Miraval is owned by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and has become a place dedicated to the arts – music, cinema, theatre, local food, and fine wine.
