a wine estate in the Aix-en-Provence vineyard
Set in the heart of Provence, Château Bonisson is an extraordinary place. Both a destination and a source of inspiration, it is an epicentre of creativity with a streak of independence. Its name comes from the French verb bonnir, meaning ‘to chat’ since this estate – a beautifully preserved oasis of charm with its 18th century country house and Italianate terrace overlooking vineyards bounded by woods and a hill studded with ancient oaks – was once a welcome retreat to meet and converse when balmy summer days arrived.
A place known for doing things differently, looking outward and bringing people together. A space where tradition – the earliest records of vines here date back to 1791 – passion, style and refinement all come together in a spirit of creation.
Everything, from Nature to Culture, comes alive here.
Discipline meets dissidence. Refinement meets rebellion. At Château Bonisson, all these ideas can be expressed in a single phrase: ‘The Fresh Perspective’.
Château Bonisson is set in the heart of Provence, in the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence protected appellation of origin area.
