A name, a history, a reborn

While taking over The Château de la Vaisinerie’s destiny, I couln’t imagine how my life would change. Born from a family from Bordeaux, I have always lived close to vines ; but becoming winegrower is giving it a whole new meaning. We enter in wine universe like we enter a religion.

The year 2005 has been the startin point of extensive works, continuing until today. This large building from the 17th century needed a complete rehabilitation, respecting the aesthetic and techniques of that time.

Works and cares have also benefited to the vines : we wanted from the beginning to take the best from its potential. Authenticity, know-how, but also technicity and strictness are part of wine elaboration. Mother nature seemed to reward the castle reborn in 2005 with one of the greatest vintage of this century.

Year after year, we are measuring the exceptionnal potential of the domain : Château la Vaisinerie is today a recognized wine, celebrated by specialized guides and magazines, and rewarded in famous wine contests.
