Four Generations of Traditional Family Winemaking

It’s truly a family affair at Vignobles Arbo and it has been since the beginning of the twentieth century. Bernadette Arbo’s great-great-grandfather bought this idyllic plot to the north-west of Bordeaux just before WW1. Unfortunately, Amand Puyache was killed in the war before he could realize his dream of owning a winery and the vineyard. Happily, fate intervened and today the vineyard produces excellent Bordeaux wines that he would have been proud of. When Bernadette inherited the vineyard, the grapes were being sent to a local cooperative. However, with her husband Joseph, she decided to leave the cooperative and revive Amand’s original plans.

Diversity of Wines at Vignobles Arbo

Additional land was subsequently acquired and currently, the winery comprises 40 hectares split over two distinctive appellations. Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux comprises ten hectares of vines exclusively for reds. Francs Cotes de Bordeaux is also for reds with the exception of two hectares planted with Semillon and Sauvignon for white wine production. Their red wines are made from Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc. The grapes are machine harvested which provides the possibility of night-working if conditions require it. Buying barrels from various coopers allows them to achieve a diversity of flavors and aromas.

Sustainable Approach and Bee-Friendly Viticulture Methods

Bernadette and Joseph are firmly committed to sustainable practices that do not harm the environment. The packaging is carefully chosen and pesticides have been off-limits for more than a decade. The areas between rows of vines have been grassed to provide a bee-friendly haven. Community presence is important to Vignobles Arbo as they have hired several young locals to gain work experience at the winery.
