Château de Rey
In the commune of Canet en Roussillon just a short jaunt from the Mediterranean Sea you'll find Château de Rey. As fourth generation winemakers in this corner of the Roussillon, Cathy & Phillipe Sisqueille use sustainable farming methods to bring out the best in their vines. The character in the bottle is a result of the ideal climate of breezes from the sea keeping freshness in the diverse wines offered here. The personality of the domaine shines through not only in the unique flavor profiles of each wine produced, but also with the inventive and playful labels designed by Cathy.
When visiting the winery, Château de Rey also offers a truly unique walking tour through the vineyards, which culminates with the opportunity to sit on an enormous bench on order to get a better view of the Mediterranean Sea just 5km away. When guests are finished walking through the vineyards, they have the opportunity to enjoy a glass in one of several foudres pictured above that have been converted into semi-private tasting rooms.
There is a wine for every occasion here, from the gently sparkling Si’s Plau, to a savory Carignane, and of course dessert wines made with 2 different varieties of Muscat. Château de Rey is a unique jewel of the Roussillon, whose wines are well worth discovering.
