The Parish House
THE “PRESBITAIRE” circa 1715
Originally located 30 miles from the center of Dijon, France in the heart of the Burgundy country, the Parish House was built as the Priest’s residence, adjacent to the Parish Church. The Parish House was shipped from France by the Havens and reconstructed on the current site surrounded by the fabulous panoramic vistas of Cal-a-Vie. Re-construction was complete in June, 2018 and the Presbitaire was opened for guests to enjoy the distinctive estate wines of Chateau Cal-a-Vie.
