Château Mont Thabor was built in the 17th century, deriving it’s name from one of the most famous mountains of Galilee, Israel (widely mentioned in sacred writings for it’s strategic and religious importance). In 1881 Fritz Stehlin bought the estate, continued the established wine making but improved conditions and quality of the wines. In 1940, Luc Stehlin succeeded his great uncle Fritz and continued to improve the viticulture and viniculture practices at the Chateau integrating the utilization of horses in the vineyards. Since 1977 to present day, Daniel Stehlin has followed in the steps of his father Luc, producing some of the most elegant yet powerful wines of the region. He cultivates these unfiltered, rich yet pure red wines from 4 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape and six hectares in Côtes du Rhône.
