Our Story

Welcome to Château de Minière

Château de Minière is a castle with operating vineyard and winery. It’s located in the heart of the Bourgueil terroir in the Loire Valley. Come and visit us for a complete wine experience!

“We fell in love with Château de Minière as soon as we saw it” – says Kathleen Mareels – Van den Berghe, the owner of Château de Minière wine estate since 2010.

We visited several wine regions and properties and on the last day of our trip we were captivated by Château de Minière. And Kathleen’s husband, Sigurd Mareels being in the Mining industry made the choice even easier.

Our journey in the wine world started from there.
