Bizard was the family name of the property owners back in the 16th century. The location later took on this name. Genealogical research in the municipal archives came upon a widow called Claire BIZARD who died in 1712.
During this period, several generations worked on a major silk farm.
Today centuries-old blackberry bushes still bear witness to the production of threads of silk here.
At the time, there was still no talk of WINE.
The first production of red wines and white wines at Chateau Bizard in the Côtes du Rhône region dates from 1862. People did not talk about vines or vineyards at the time but "vine fields" like meadows or fields of wheat.

Where is the castle?
