The vineyard of the Château de Pennautier, Versailles of Languedoc

Nicknamed "The Versailles of the Languedoc", the Château de Pennautier, not far from Carcassonne, is a 17th century historical monument.
Today it is a beautiful wine estate and a place for receptions.
In 1620 Bernard de Pennautier, treasurer of the States of Languedoc, laid the first stone of a castle which today remains one of the most beautiful buildings in the region, located 5 kms from the famous City of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi, two sites classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
Louis XIII stayed there in 1622.
Inspired by the style of the Versailles castle, it has been redesigned several times and more particularly enlarged in 1670 by the architect Le Vau, at the same time as he was building the orangery of the Versailles castle. From 1701, we find traces of Pennautier wines served at the table of the king's officers in Versailles. 
The park, designed in the French style by the landscape architect Le Nôtre, has kept the same 30 hectares perimeter as when the castle was built.
Ninth generation of the same lineage that built the castle in 1620, Nicolas and Miren de Lorgeril will receive you at the castle of Pennautier that they have entirely restored to welcome seminars, stays and prestigious receptions.
