William de Courten's mother Aline Courten run for a number of years the property Domaine Le Vieux Calcernier. She had for some years help from her two sons Comte Christophe and William and decided in 2014 to let the two sons share the 10 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape belonging to the domain. William's part was 4,5 ha.

Williams 1st vintage 2015, was made in the family's renovated cellar at Chemin du Bois de la Ville and stored here in an underground machine house.
The two brothers have
since decided that they both will have their own cellar.
Well, there is only a wall between their cellars but the door is seriously bloched!
William and his family lives in a historic old building at 30, Rue Joseph Ducos where you will meet his English-speaking wife Nadine presenting the wines.
