Le Château des Mille Anges, owes its name to its location « milange », where one once found the convent of the Sisters of the Assumption, located next to the site of the new church of Saint Germain de Graves. This was rebuilt in the 19th century in neo-roman style with a square clock tower and containing 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. Mrs Van Ekris, seduced by the unique panorama bought the vineyard in 1994.
Major investments have since been made. Including a new chai for the oak barrels, new storage facilities and expansion and renovation of the cuverie. All cuves are individually climate controlled as are the storage facilities. Also added were 2 new apartments for the staff and visitors. The “Château des Mille Anges” is so named in memory of the little children who were taught here
