Winemaker's Notes:

Every effort is made to make the best wines possible. The red wine is hand-made and great care is given to the selection afterwards. The grapes are transported in small boxes of 20 kg in order to avoid them being squeezed or oxidation. The preparation of the wine is done in a traditional way: every parcel of vines is separately prepared in small vats of stainless steel or wood with integrated hot and cold regulation. The wine is aged in oak barrels for between 16 to 18 months.

About Chateau Haut Bergey:

In the fifteenth century, the lord of La Louviere and Lord Olivier proceeded to land consolidation. Thus was born "The Noble House of Pontey, today Château Haut-Bergey. In 1700, Sir John Francis Cresse, advisor to the parliament of Bordeaux makes his home. In 1772, the estate had 100 hectares of vines. A century later, the vineyard was abandoned and rebuilt the castle in 1850 is a property approval. It was not until the second half of this century, 1957 specifically so that gradually the area regains its past wine. In March 1991, Sylviane Garcin Cathiard acquired Château Haut-Bergey.

The 28.5 hectares of land are located in the heart of the village of Léognan, mecca of Graves.
