Producing wines since Roman times, today the estate is owned by the Roozen family, who are continually striving to produce delicious wine, whilst protecting their environment.
Val Joanis is a beautiful estate of 400 hectares with stunning gardens and views over the Lubéron. Created in 1978 with the help of landscaper Tobbie Loup de Viane, the garden of Château Val joanis has been labelled “Remarkable Garden” since 2005 and elected “Garden of the Year” in 2008. It welcomes several hundred visitors each year. Designed in the image of 17th century gardens, the garden is made up of three terraces, sheltered from the mistral wind. The vegetable garden, ensuring self-sufficiency in vegetables and fruit, cohabits harmoniously with the large collection of perennials, roses and other Mediterranean species.
The 120 hectares of vineyard spread over the hills at altitudes ranging from 280m to 450m, the site of the famous plot ‘Les Griottes’. The vineyards also benefit from a sunny exposure and enjoy a particularly favourable microclimate with late ripening giving the wines freshness and balance. Chateau Val Joanis is a benchmark in the Lubéron.
