The Murray Family has a strong passion for wine which is reflected in their direct investment into a vineyard in France


The 290-hectare Estate of Chateau Routas is nestled between the old town elegance of Aix-en-Provence, and the white sand beaches that line the Gulf de Saint Tropez. An altitude of 350 meters provides cooler nights contributing to wines that combine both freshness and grape complexity. In 2005 Sir David Murray & family took ownership, ushering in a new era for Chateau Routas.
