Family Winery in the 4th Generation
Vignobles Garzaro has four generations of expertise, has perfect growing conditions and has a careful balance of tradition. This is what makes Vignobles Garzaro at Chateau le Prieur notable among Bordeaux wineries. Originally this modest chateau was a part of the Abbaye de la Sauve where the monks retreated to meditate. Today this charming estate is a gem of the Aquitaine region.
Sustainable Methods and Respect for the Terrain
Brothers Pierre-Etienne, Jean-David and Silvain Garzaro, who manage the winery, firmly believe in respect for the terroir and what it brings to the production. The Garzaros focus their efforts on making the vines able to resist disease, and to employing sustainable methods. Moreover, no chemicals used on the vineyards. As further proof of that commitment the winery also holds a certificate for sustainable agriculture.
Appellation Range at Vignobles Garzaro
With first-rate reds, whites and rosés, even a sparkling crémant, the output of the Garzaro family’s 90 hectares are certainly diverse. There are 10 hectares in the celebrated Pomerol, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, and Saint-Emilion appellations. While the remaining is in Baron, 20 kilometres from Bordeaux, are in the Entre Deux Mers appellation. On rich clay-limestone soil, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon–the classic grapes for Bordeaux reds–are grown, and for their white wines, the Gazaros grow Muscadelle, Sémillon and Sauvignon vines. Standing out are the lightly oaked Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, and the Cremant de Bordeaux made from Sémillon grapes. The Vieux Chateau Flouquet took bronze at the Concours des Vins des Vignerons Indépendants 2018 competition higlighting their winemaking excellence.
