Australian-Owned Chateau Picoron

Chateau Picoron was established in 1570 by the Picoron family and is a 5-hectare estate located on the limestone and clay ridge next to Saint-Emilion. Currently, it is owned and operated by an Australian family that rightly celebrate the estate’s history and put together the past and future of Australia and France. The production is very limited, and around 2000 wine cases are made annually for their family and friends.

Proper Expression of the Terroir at the Winery

The winery makes a limited amount of wine that inspires both the current and upcoming generation of wine drinkers. Their aim is not to be compared to anyone but to make a wine that is truly unique to them and the terroir of Bordeaux. The wines do not reflect hectares of vines but the true quality of the rich Bordeaux terroir. Merlot is the main grape variety grown here and used to make their exquisite red wine. Chateau Picoron makes the best Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux wines.

Sustainable and Limited Production

The winemaker Stephane Apelbaum has a deep connection with nature and prefers to make wines with a sustainable approach, proper work in the vineyards, and minimal human intervention. Soon, the winery will be certified organic and is in the process of conversion now. The boutique winery can offer an authentic visit experience in an incredibly beautiful estate. Depending on the moment, they will offer you a tasting of wine before bottling (from barrels or vats) with their wine team.
