When Eugène Demoulin acquired the delapidated property in 1936 he set to work restoring both the vines and the château to their former glory. Coincidentally, the same year saw the declaration of Tavel as an appellation exclusively for rosé wines. Four generations later, Guillaume Demoulin and his wife Céline are making critically acclaimed wines that are "begging to be paired with Moroccan food".
«Les Vignes d'Eugène» is the top Tavel cuvée from Château de Trinquevedel. Fruit is sourced from only the best 3 hectares of the property, where vines have an average age of 60 years. Many of these vines were planted by Eugène himself, so the name of the cuvée (Eugène's Vines) is an homage to the winery's founder.
