Later, Joseph de La Pise, Lord of Maucoil and archivist of the House of Orange-Nassau, the Dutch royal family, inherited the estate and the castle which was built in 1624. From then on, winegrowing became an intrinsic part of the history of Château Maucoil.
A series of illustrious families successively took over the reins of the estate and helped to establish its reputation. Already owners of another Château, the Arnaud family, several generations of whom were born and raised in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, decided to purchase the estate in 1995. Bénédicte, the youngest daughter of the Arnaud family, took charge of the Château with her husband Charles Bonnet in 2009.
The 25 hectares of vines in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation are tended in organic agriculture since 2011. We are aware of the estate’s privileged situation and unique terroir, so we allow the vines to grow in pace with the care, precision and patience that we devote to them. We are attentive to the soil and work in the traditional way without using chemical weed killers. At Château Maucoil we prefer to use ancient methods such as furrowing, forming mounds and ploughing. We tend our vineyard with maximum respect for the people and the environment.
