AOP BORDEAUX SUPERIEUR
CHATEAU DES ARRAS is a family business for 3 generations, the winery is run by two sisters involved in both winegrowing and winemaking. In the 50s their grandfather decided to grow vines, a full underground drainage system was put in place to maintain the natural flow of rainwater and stimulate the vines. Moreover, the soil has the required qualities to grow vines with a layer of clay that allows the roots to spread and to draw nutrients.
Depending on the quality of the soil, you select the vines that are the most likely to use the naturally available resources. The selection depends on a study of the underground. Even though, sometime when the vines get old they will develop different needs. Bringing natural fertiliser is a good option to help the vines. It is important to respect the natural balance and that they have been doing for a long time by doing sustainable agriculture, today they go further by getting the HVE (high Environmental Value) certification and turning to organic in 2020.
CHATEAU OGIER DE GOURGUE - COTES DE BORDEAUX
Former "hunting rendez-vous" built in the seventeenth century by the family "de Gourgue", the castle is named after Ogier de Gourgue historical figure who was the adviser of King Louis XIII, Treasurer of France and General Finance in Bordeaux during the second half of the sixteenth century.
Lord de Vayres, Ogier Gourgue built his fortune by investing in land and lordships.
Passed to his eldest son Marc Antoine de Gourgue, who was the first President of the Parliament of Bordeaux, the castle changed hands several times over the centuries. Since 2010, this charming area belongs to the VINCENT family who undertook major changes and renovations.
Located 12km southeast of Bordeaux in the municipality of Saint-Caprais de Bordeaux, Chateau Ogier de Gourgue enjoys a perfect exposure on a high plateau of the Côtes de Bordeaux and a magnificent view of the township of La Brede. The 8 hectares that make up the estate are located around the property and vineyard, in one piece, it occupies about 5 hectares. The vineyard extends on clay-limestone hillsides and clay and gravel, naturally drained.
Property of Florence Delorme, Domaine de la roche pilée is located in the commune of Villié-Morgon, it extends on 4.2 hectares and produces a red wine of AOP Morgon. The wines are made with Gamay, the grape variety of the Beaujolais.
The vine grows on sunny hills, in climate Corcelette and Douby. The grounds are peculiar, made of a disintegrated and pyritic schist, called "crushed rock", which gives the wine its character and the domain its patronym. As in the whole Beaujolais appellation, the harvest is hand-made, then sorted carefully to preserve the very best of the harvest. The grape harvest is then vatted in whole grapes, in order to respect the specific vinification of the appellation. In this case, the fermentation, or at least part, occurs at the very heart of the fruits, which are called intracellular fermentation. This enriches the aroma range of the wine and adds extra complexity.

This area is then composed of 24 small parcels of vines. Through extensive grubbing work, then purchases and replantings, the estate now operates 6.5 hectares spread over five large plots.
