Chateau Val Joanis

Chateau Val Joanis is a 1,000-acre estate featuring one of the oldest operating vineyards in the world. The property, located in Provence, France, boasts organic grapes, a veggie and herb garden, an olive orchard and fruit trees. Because the vineyard yields wine below the general average output, it's easy to operate sustainably—that is, without the use of chemicals or mineral fertilizers.
