Chateau de la Selve is in the Ardèche region, located between Northern and Southern Rhône. Chateau de la Selve is one of many producers in this area practising organic and biodynamic vineyard/winery techniques.
The vineyards are situated on the banks of the Chassezac river, the most important tributary of the Ardèche. The soil consists of very chalky clay. In 1990, Chàteau de la Selve was bought by Jean-Régis and Magdeleine Chazollon. As their son Benoît took over the winemaking in 2002 at which time, the vineyard also turned biodynamic. Beautifully clean and pure wines are being produced at the domaine, that celebrate the unique terroir of the region.
