The wines of the estate
Château l'Hospitalet is nestled in the heart of the protected La Clape massif, a former link in the Pyrenees chain, a Phoenician and then Roman island, the cradle of the vine in France. From the 13th century, the Hospices de Narbonne settled on La Clape, linked to the mainland by the alluvial deposits of the Aude since the end of the Middle Ages.Documents from 1561 attest to its mission of welcoming and sharing with pilgrims.This vocation of hospitality inspired Gérard Bertrand who made L'Hospitalet the beating heart of his action around the Mediterranean art of living, since he acquired the property in 2002. The Château now has a hotel, a gourmet restaurant, a tasting and sales cellar, an Art Space and a rich offer of sensory tours around wine Music was missing: in 2004, the château hosted the first “Jazz à l’Hospitalet” festival, which today has become an international benchmark.
