Since the acquisition of the property in 1870, the passion for wine has been passed down from generation to generation in the Francisco family. Jean, the father, recounts how he used to rush out of school to tend to his three vines planted behind the house.
In total harmony with nature, he often compares the vine to a child that he cherishes, cares for and observes, in order to help it grow better.
Claude does not forget his grandfather’s little tricks when he cultivates his vines. During a walk in the vineyard with his clients, he tells the story of this beautiful plant like a book.
Stéphanie always reminds herself of her grandmother’s good advice for the marketing of her wines. She has always been passionate about the great world of wine, and speaks about hers to her clients and friends with simplicity and passion.

The Médoc appellation
The Médoc appellation concerns the northern part of the Médoc vineyards and covers an area of 4,900 hectares. It concentrates the majority of the “crus bourgeois” and “crus artisans”. The soils of the Médoc are mostly brown clay-limestone and clay-sand with some limestone outcrops on certain terroirs. Merlot plays an important part in the blend of red wines, complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Médoc wines are fine and complex, with notes of red and black fruits. They age well over time due to their barrel ageing and can be kept for 3 to 10 years.
