Historically the Bordeaux region has been connected with hospitality with a string of noble châteaux. Indeed, it offered a bed and refreshment. Not only to soldiers on their way to and from the crusades, but also to pilgrims bound for Saint Jacques de Compostelle. Moreover, according to some sources, Château Le Sèpe gets its name from the former owners, Knights Templars. In fact, it is because of this imposing stone residence situated between Bergerac and Saint-Émilion. Present owners Catherine and Dominique Guffond are continuing that tradition. They produce award-winning wines and they are actually in organic conversion.

With the help of JF Rontein, the 2009 vintage took gold at the Wines Bordeaux competition. As a matter of fact, it was the first after the couple took over the estate. It is just the first in a string of accolades which prove the team are on the right track. Production is chemical-free and there is an emphasis on restricting yeld per hectare in order to maintain quality. The steepness of the slopes helps provide for good drainage. There are 23 hectares of vines, of which 13 are Merlot, 4 each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon and one each of Sauvignon and Malbec. The red wines are thermoregulated during vinification. While maturing can be in French oak barrels or concrete vats, dependent on the vintage in question.

The couple looks to the future with the aim of continually improving the quality of the domain and strengthening their commitment to the biodiversity and exceptional land that serves them so well.
