Château Aqueria

Tavel’s most famous exporter, Aqueria is located right at the eastern edge of the village, with the entrance to the estate itself being located in the commune of Lirac. One of Tavel’s big four, Aqueria was recently bought by Guigal, although it is unclear how much of a shakeup this will result in. The Aqueria house style is strongly influenced by its sandy terroir, and the wines are typically among the palest and lightest of the appellation. Malolactic is blocked, and maceration is roughly 12-18hrs.
