Canadel's history dates back to Roman times . The preventive archaeological excavations carried out before the construction of the cellar in 2013 made it possible to update a villa Roman equipped with an oil press and wine vats.
The 5 bastides of the estate were built one after the other, between the 13th and 15th centuries. They are organized like a village around a chapel and canals which gave their name to the estate: "the water canal" which gave rise to Canadeau, then Canadel.
In 2007, Jacques and Caroline de Chateauvieux fell in love with this "paradise on earth" and bought the estate with the aim of producing Château Canadel wine, and to establish their family there, back from Reunion.
In 2009, they entrusted the reins of the estate to their daughter, Laure Benoist, agricultural engineer and her husband Vianney, agronomist and oenologist. During 5 years, they will tame the domain and build a cellar so that a new domain is born in Bandol . In 2014, the first bottle of Château Canadel was born.
