Situated on the communes of Civrac and Bégadan, CHATEAU LA TESSONNIERE is a family business stemming from four generations of wine growers.

Today we run a twenty-ish hectares property of a clay and limestone soil.

Our choices in grape varieties adapted to the soil composition allow us to get the best from our lands, which is a strong balanced red wine that can grow old beautifully and will charm your taste buds.

CRU ARTISAN since 1997, we won several medals at the Aquitaine's wines contest.

Our production comes in three flavors:
-The CHATEAU LA TESSONNIERE
-The FLEURON DE LA TESSONNIERE (wine that spent twelve months in french oak barrels)
-The BOIS DU ROI (grapes from a hundred-year-old vineyards plot)
