Château Margüi - Châteauvert

Château Margüi sits in a calm magnificence in the bucolic wooded hills of the Coteaux de Varois in northern Provence. The long-neglected property was lovingly restored by Philippe Guillanton starting in 2000. Phillipe’s wife, Marie-Christine, supervised the restoration of the manor house and gardens while Phillipe’s attention was turned to wine. Consulting with local oenologists, Philippe replanted the vineyards, neglected for over 20 years, and now has 30 hectares of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle and Ugni Blanc, planted according to the specific terroirs. Ch. Margüi was purchased by George Lucas and Skywalker Vineyards in 2017. Skywalker Vineyards approach to wine is imprinted with the same integrity and excellence as Lucas’s cinematic works. Ch. Margüi is a natural fit for the Skywalker group of wineries, embodying the Skywalker philosophy of land stewardship and respect for terroir. The dedication to organic farming and meticulous natural winemaking begun by Philippe Guillanton will continue under the Skywalker leadership.
