The Barons of Bellet, whose title of nobility was granted in 1777 by the King of the Sardinian states, established their property on the upper part of Nice. This family is one of the oldest AOCs in France. This notoriety still exists today, as the highest slopes of the appellation produce some truly top wines. The Barons of Bellet count among the handful of winegrowing families, who after World War II, replanted old and very characteristic local grape varieties, adapted to this terroir. Braquet, Folle Noire and Rolle are the names of the varieties producing the wines at Château de Bellet.
