Château de Bellet

The Barons of Bellet, whose title of nobility was granted in 1777 by the King of the Sardinian states, established their property on the upper part of Nice. This family, originating from Savoie, gave its name to the appellation, which celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2011. Indeed, it is one of the oldest AOCs in France.

Situated on the appellation’s highest parcels, the vines of Chateau de Bellet surround the historic family chapel. Built in homage to Agnes Roissard de Bellet, who passed away at the age of 23, this monument currently houses her statue. It can be seen from miles around and was constructed out of white stones from the former quarry of La Turbie. These are the same stones used to build Monaco’s cathedral, famous casino and oceanographic museum.

The wines of Bellet boast an international and long standing reputation. Thomas Jefferson said that he had enjoyed the “great wine” of Nice, discovered during a visit to the region. This notoriety still exists today, as the highest slopes of the appellation produce some truly top wines. Chateau de Bellet has made an appearance at important events: the Versailles Summit of Heads of State in 1982, the European Summit in Nice in 2000 and the NATO Summit in 2005. More recently,
Chateau de Bellet was served at the royal wedding of Prince Albert of Monaco and Princess Charlene.

A breath-taking landscape.
