The Château's vineyard was created by the Arnaud family before the French Revolution in 1789. It is located on the best terroirs of the appellation. The owners are committed to producing top-quality wines. To achieve this goal, the vineyard is cultivated according to traditional methods: the grass is left to grow freely in every other row to limit the vigour of the plants, and the vines are thinned out in summer to control the yield. Similarly, the harvest is done manually to optimize the berry sorting.
