Originally from Algeria, the Sénéclauze family took root in Provence in 1962 after a detour through the Medoc. Both owners of vineyards and specialists in the distribution of fine wines, Sénéclauze cultivate the entrepreneurial taste, love of his profession and long-term vision.
The attachment to Provence is confirmed by the acquisition in 1991 of the Domaine de Val d’Arenc in the heart of the Bandol appellation.
The name Val d’Arenc is an echo of the Latin word arena which means sand. Sands quarries still exploited are located below the estate.
In 2015, the arrival of Gerald Damidot, as Director of Chateau d’Arenc, marked a new impetus. New working methods were implemented in the vineyards with the idea of becoming totally organic.
