About Chateau Puech-Haut:

Coming up the long lane, bordered by olive trees, with vineyards on each side, it is difficult to imagine how this place was about 15 years ago; it certainly did not resemble a vineyard estate. Today, Château Puech-Haut is one of the most beautiful estates in the Languedoc, and the wines amongst the finest in the region.

The story of Château Puech-Haut is interesting, as is that of Gérard BRU, the owner. An ex-industrialist who, starting from nothing, created a business of 500 employees and a personal fortune.
