The Producer

Domaine Benedetti was established in 1930 by Nicolas Benedetti moving from Italy to France and directly to Châteauneuf du Pape. Nicolas Benedetti is the great grand father of the actual owner, Nicolas Benedetti, sharing the same first name. After his death, Nicolas’ three children took over the domaine.

Noël Benedetti, grand father of the actual owner, inherited 1,4 ha of Châteuneuf du Pape and 1ha of Côtes-du-Rhône. Until 1997 and the arrival of his son Christian he used to bring the grapes to the coop. After 1997, Christian decided to start making his own wine and created Domaine Benedetti. Between 1998 and 2001, Christian got the opportunity to grow the Estate with 4 ha of Côtes-du-Rhône and 2,2 ha of Châteauneuf du Pape. As a natural extension,Christian moved to organic agriculture in 2000. Decision was made based on his personnal conviction, respect of nature and a guarantee of quality.

In 2004, Nicolas Benedetti joined the adventure after studying oenology ans winemaking. Today the Estate sits on 4 ha of Châteauneuf du Pape, 10 ha of Côtes-du-Rhône and 2ha of Vin de Pays. They just built a state of the art winemaking facility.
