Winery

Haut Bergey

It was love at first sight and the promising charm of Chateau Haut-Bergey that led Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard, granddaughter of a wine merchant and a successful business woman, to acquire and renovate this 28.5-hectare property in the heart of Leognan, a leading area of the Graves region. The estate’s foremost principle is to produce a wine of excellent quality, sparing no efforts to continuously improve craftsmanship and expertise.

The vineyard of comprises 26.5 hectares of red grapes and 2 hectares of white grapes. It is well exposed to the south and south-west on slightly sloping grounds, ensuring natural drainage. During summertime and especially in September, the gravel topsoil reflects absorbed heat onto the bunches of grapes, thus improving the process of ripening. The subsoil, which influences the deep-rooted vines, is composed of clay and chalk streaked with iron-bearing parts.
