Château de Jau is a winery in Roussillon in southern France, close to the Spanish border on the Mediterranean side. It is a family owned property, owned by the Dauré family. They also own the Clos de Paulilles, which is on the coast. At both properties they have restaurants where they serve excellent food and, of course, plenty of their own wines.

The Chateau de Jau is located on the southern-most parts of the Corbieres mountain range, in the Vallee de l’Agly, a valley where many excellent Roussillon vineyards are located. The vineyards of Chateau de Jau extend over 134 hectares and are planted with a variety of grape varieties: syrach, mourvèdre, carignan, grenache noir, cabernet for the reds and macabeo and vermentino, muscat for the white wines. Their best know wine is probably the Le Jaja de Jau, an easy-drinking wine that exists in different varietals with a playful label.
