Château de la Grave

France

Nestled in a 14th century castle, Château de la Grave is an exceptional addition to the enotri community, offering a stunning collection of Bordeaux wines faithful to the traditions of this celebrated region of France.

Guiding principles include respect for the environment; quality control in the vineyards; vinification and maturing in the pure Bordeaux tradition.

There is a special welcome for all who delight in wine at this 14th century estate, with a chance to stay in the turret or in the main castle while enjoying wines from the estate and the surrounding area on the banks of the Bourg, the oldest Roman vineyards on the Atlantic coast of France.

Well recognized in French wine guides as an emerging star of the Bourg region, the wines of the Bassereau family blend Semillon and Colombard in an exquisite white, while the Merlot-dominated reds are spiced with Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
