The wines of the Domain

Since 1791, the Chateau d’Espeyran offers wines that surprise even the most avid of wine experts. Classified in AOP Costières de Nîmes on an exceptional terroir, our wines offer a real typicity of Southern wines!

Made from vines grown in accordance with the High Environment Value (HVE) standard, our wines are also a delight for amateurs: red wines with deep, velvety colors and pronounced aromas, or our fresh and fruity rosés with a pale pink is the pinnacle of sophistication.

In 2017 we created a new range “L’envol” in red and rosé which is a summary of what we do best at Chateau d’Espeyran. It’s your turn to succumb to it!

In 2018 we launched our premium cuvée “Réserve des Illustres”: very confidential cuvée…
