Chateau Monestier La Tour Book
For more than twenty-five years, the Scheufele family searched for an interesting château in France to live out their passion for wine. Château Monestier La Tour was like a coup de foudre, and the charm of the place immediately overwhelmed them. The château dates back to a thirteenth-century monastery and stands proudly on a small hill overlooking Monestier, a historic village just next to Bergerac.
Nestled in the Périgord region of France—a paradise for gourmands, wine lovers, and history buffs—Château Monestier La Tour’s heritage is as rich and elegant as the wines it produces. This exceptional volume traverses the château’s legacy of viticulture, first officially recorded in 1792; after being passed down through noble French families, it was picked up by proprietors from New Zealand and the Netherlands before being acquired in 2012 by the Scheufele family, who have restored the château to its cozy grandeur.
