Château La Nerthe is one of the oldest properties in Châteauneuf-du-Pape an is owned by the Richard family, who also own estates in Tavel, Beaujolais and Bordeaux. The Château was built in the 18th century but historical winery records date as far back as 1560.
La Nerthe farms 92 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape (divided into 57 parcels), two-thirds of which surround the château, the third is located on the famous plateau of La Crau. The property has been organic certified since 1998.
The soils here are a mixture of sandy clay and marl, as well as the typical galets roulés. The property is fortunate to have a natural spring within its grounds, which is incredibly beneficial to the vines in this often drought-prone region.
Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah dominate plantings although the vineyard is planted to all 13 permitted grape varieties. The estate farms one of the highest proportions of white vines in the region and produces a special white cuvée – Clos de Beauvenir – from the clos directly in front of the château.
