UNE HISTOIRE DE FAMILLE POUR DES VINS DE CARACTÈRE
FAMILY WINERY ESTABLISHED SINCE 1782
The BARREAU vineyard is a family estate passed down from generation to generation since 1782. Our two Château, Haut-Garriga and Coutreau, are located in the wine-growing Entre-deux-Mers area, 10km away from St Emilion and 30km from Bordeaux.
We are historic producers of white wines and we export wines to Europe since 30 years. Nowadays we manage 75 hectares of vines and produce 4 000 hL of wine for the Bordeaux and Entre-deux-Mers appellations.
We have been independent winemakers for many years. All our wines are produced with passion in our modern cellar
'TERROIR' AND SUSTAINABLE VITICULTURE
Our sustainable viticulture is a direct extension of the evenly distributed soils all around our vineyard. Those diverse and unique soils are our greatest wealth.
In order to gest the best out of this terroir, Merlot and Cabernet are planted on chalky-clay type soils to reach optimal phenolic ripeness on our slopes. Sauvignon blanc is spread on the coolest soils of the estate to exalt the fruit aromas. Muscadelle and Sémillon form an ideal complement in the clayey soils closer to the Dordogne river.
Our strength and success as a family estate comes from the way we apply sustainable viticulture to our domain, and make the best out of it for you to taste !
