Chateu Val-Joanis is situated in Luberon, east of Avignon and north of Aix-en-Provence, in the southern part of the Rhone Valley, on the site of an ancient Roman villa, some of the foundations of which are still visible in the lower part of the property. Vineyard and olive groves were torn up or burnt and the forest had invaded its fields. The land was uncultivated and the buildings left to deteriorate. The Herculean task of rehabilitation was begun: ditches were dug to drain the water away and the slopes were remodelled from north to south to revive this historic soil, which consists largely of water-worn gravel. In Roman times, these vineyards produced wines that were sent to Rome down the Via Dolmitia, which passes not far from the estate. Over the next twenty years, 186 hectares of vines were planted and trained on stainless steel wires, to prevent the grapes touching the ground and being spoiled. – Description from AlexJelena
