When Bernard Teillaud acquired the estate in 2005, he was returning to his roots, going back to the land his family had owned from 1956 to 1978. The house and its vineyard, formerly “Domaine Saint-Michel d’Esclans”, were renamed “Château des Demoiselles.” This was a homage from Bernard Teillaud to his daughter, Aurélie Bertin, who instilled femininity and modernity into the estate, but also to the ‘Demoiselles de Provence’, daughters of the last Count of Provence and Toulouse who would all become queens.
Ten years ago, Aurélie Bertin took over the management of the family’s two estates, Château des Demoiselles and Château Sainte Roseline.
Wine Tourism at Château Des Demoiselles
All year long, Château des Demoiselles welcomes artists and professionals. A range of one-day events are organised, around vineyard picnics or jazz concerts, for example. Every year, we also host exhibitions under the “Art et Vin” program. On an everyday basis, visitors can tour the cellars and taste Château des Demoiselles’ wines. Fans of outdoor activities can explore the 200 hectares of forest by bicycle or explore the many hiking trails. Quads can also be provided.
Overlooked by a chapel dedicated to Saint Michael, Château des Demoiselles mainly produces rosé wines (80%). Reds and whites account for 15% and 5% of the wine it sells, respectively. The 72-hectare vineyard, planted between plains and hillsides, lies on the clay-limestone soil of the Les Esclans valley.
