About Mille Anges
Le Château des Mille Anges, owes its name to the locality « milange », where one found convent of the Sisters of the Assomption, located next to the site of the new church of saint Germain de Graves, which was rebuilt in the 19th century in neo-roman style and where one can admire the square clock tower and its ancient paintings.
The religious order cultivated vines for the table and for mass. Until the second World War, little children were taught and protected by the sisters, but the convent was subsequently closed because of wars. Mrs Van Ekris, seduced by the unique panorama bought the vineyard in 1994.
Major investments have since been made. A new chai for the oak barrels, new storage facilities, expansion and renovation of the cuverie. All cuves are individually climate controlled as well as the storage facilities. Also added were 2 new apartments for the staff and visitors. The name “Château des Mille Anges” is in memory of the little children who were taught here.
