Chanfreau Family’s Chateau Lestage
Chateau Lestage is a part of the Chanfreau Family for over 50 years now. It is a beautiful Napoleon III building, constructed in 1870 under the guidance of renowned architect Minvielle. The estate is in Bordeaux and was owned by various families during times of crisis and wars. Marcel Chanfreau arrived here and bought the property in 1963. Generations have passed, and his grandchildren are currently running the traditional family business at the estate, making exquisite wines with love.
Appropriate conditions for vine cultivation
The vineyard is on the highest point of the Medoc, the Puy de Menjon, 43 meters above sea level. Its vineyard counts 42 hectares on Listrac-Médoc appellation and 9 hectares on Moulis-en-Médoc appellation. The presence of marl, clay-limestone, and Pyrenean gravel provides the perfect conditions for growing fruity grapes for making wine. The team follows sustainability, and a lot of effort is made to protect nature and preserve the health of vines.
Terra Vitis winery
Terra Vitis certifies the winery for its sustainability and organic viticulture. Merlot is the favorite grape of the region, but Petit-Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon also grow here. The best grapes are processed in the cellar to make red and white wine. The cellar was renovated in 2002 and has all the necessary technology and personnel for winemaking. Barrels made from different wood types are used for ageing every year and provide a nice aromatic finish to the wines that reflect the Bordeaux magic.
