Listening to Nature’s Rhythms for Five Generation
The passion for elaborating and cultivation of wines stared in this winery in 1870. It is the 5th generation of heritage, not only of the property but also of experience and love of high-quality wines. Since 2012 the family is certified for their organic farming. Likewise, the Milhard-Bessard family follows the natural rhythm of seasoning with a deep respect for the environment. The winery owners use their own special methods of wine cultivation which allow the roots of the shrubs to go deep, mature properly, and stay healthy, they do not use treatments against decay, they plow their soils without machinery and you can even see a horse along with the shrubs in the vineyards. Chateau Vieux Mougnac embodies its virtue of beauty through exquistely crafted wines.
