The Mirabeau Bar at Goodwood Races

Blog Events

“The Goodwood Estate is in the heart of West Sussex and is home to the world famous Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and Glorious Goodwood. Goodwood House and Estate have been my family’s home for over 300 years, and there can be few places as beautiful.” ~ The Duke of Richmond and Gordon

Regarded as the most beautiful racecourse in the world, home to the Qatar Goodwood Festival, we are very happy that our Pure Provence Rosé is being served during the prestigious horseracing events. Whether visitors are in the Richmond, Gordon or Lennox enclosure, they can always find a nearby bar to enjoy a chilled glass of this delicious cuvée.

There is a long family history behind the names of the enclosures, which is rather interesting …

The current dukedom of Richmond was created in 1675[a] for Charles Lennox, the illegitimate son of King Charles II of England and a Breton noblewoman, Louise de Penancoët de Kérouaille; Charles Lennox was also made Duke of Lennox a month later. Lennox’s mother was a Breton noble, and it is thought that the Richmond title was chosen to allude to the extinct Earldom of Richmond which was held between 1136 and 1384 by members of the ducal family of Brittany

The Duke of Richmond and Lennox was furthermore created Duke of Gordon in the Peerage of the United Kingdom in 1876, meaning that the Duke holds three dukedoms— plus, in pretence, the French Duchy of Aubigny-sur-Nère— more than any other person in the realm. [Read further: Wikipedia]
