A Château with a French garden
The Château de Sannes is a simple pavilion built in 1603 by Jean de Thibaud de Tisati, king's adviser.
1661, His son, Melchior, gentleman of his highness the duke of Orleans, who marries Francoise, Melchior's niece, transforms the pavilion into a seigniorial manor house which he endows with a chapel in 1661. The Château de Sannes was born. Its French garden is arranged in the extension of a pond.
1709, Antoine de Saquy became Lord of Sannes through marriage. Charles François de Saquy, third son of Antoine de Saquy and Françoise de Thibaud Tisati presides over the enlargement of the castle and the entry of the estate into the era of modern agronomy. In 1960, the estate of Sannes was revived, its exploitation was devoted to its wine-making vocation and the castle and its outbuildings are magnificently restored. In 2017, Pierre Gattaz acquires the estate and leads the conversion of the vineyard to organic farming.In the heart of the Luberon Natural Park
Located in the heart of the Luberon Natural Park, near Ansouis, the Château offers a history, an astonishment, a journey into an authentic and secret Provence. The uniqueness and elegance of its terroir at an altitude of about 350m with a generous south-facing exposure allows the organic culture of vines and olive trees as well as old wheat varieties. We believe that the preservation of biodiversity, which abounds on the estate, is the foundation of a great wine estate. All our actions tend to respect our heritage and strive for excellence.
