Chateau de Lavison
France | Bordeaux
The year 977 marks the origin of Château de Lavison. A simple wooden tower, it will become a castle for the occupation of the English kings and then a pleasure castle for the renaissance. Today, the 60 hectares of vines stretch all around the castle on a height overlooking the valley of Dropt. Part of the estate is conducted in organic agriculture, the other part is in sustainable agriculture.
The Martet family has been cultivating land for 5 generations. His philosophy is to be closer to the plant to create wines that respect the origin, the identity of the place and the people who cultivate it.
‘Environmental Value’ certification issued by the French Ministry for Agriculture rewards the winegrower’s efforts to make their vineyard particularly environmentally friendly and covers the whole process from vine-growing to bottling.
