Authentic Wines Produced for over 200 Years
Magnificently settled on top of the hillside in the village of Néac, Chateau Tournefeuille is a family-owned winery. This popular winery has been producing authentic wines for over two hundred years. Indeed, the winery’s existence can be traced to the mid 17th century by looking at the 1785 Beyleme map.
The Story of Château Tournefeuille and their Viticultural Methods
Owned and operated by the Sautarel family for many decades, the childhood friends François Petit and Francis Cambier purchased the winery in 1998. The Petit and Cambier families consistently invest to improve the wine. They prefer using more natural viticultural techniques and stringent selection of grapes to produce unique and quality wines. In an article on affordable wines from Bordeaux, The Wall Street Journal featured the 2004 Château Tournefeuille as “soft and velvety, bursting with ripe fruit and balancing acidity, with a mineral undertone.”
