Château Les Carrasses was built in 1886 and produced wine continuously until 1988, when the vineyards were sold off. In 2011, following the sale and renovation, the estate was reunited with its original vines. Today our wines are made at our nearby sister winery, Domaine de Cibadiès, a couple of kilometres from Les Carrasses. or guided visits to carefully selected wineries can also be arranged.
The Chateau is near the Canal du Midi and the pretty canal-side village of Capestang and its shops and bars – an excellent place to watch the traffic on the canal. Canal-side horse riding is available.
The estate is west of Beziers and 25km north of Narbonne to the south of the Hérault département.
