ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Nestled among the scenic climes of Haut-Medoc, Chateau Peyrabon dates back to the 18th Century. Following construction 1766, the produce of the chateau rapidly gained popularity. By the late 19th Century, the owner of the chateau - Arnaud Roux - took legal action, aiming to reclassify the definition of the Medoc region to include Chateau Peyrabon. As you'll see from the name of this wine, he was successful. Today, Chateau Peyrabon covers some 50 hectares and is under the stewardship of Patrick Bernard - owner and founder of the celebrated merchant Millésima. Focussing on Bordeaux red, the vineyard is among the most reputable in the area.
