The idea of making wine in the middle of an area with century old oaks came when the farm was known.  Once the property was purchased, preparation works of the site began, adequately fencing the area that would be devoted to vineyards, previously selected to be located on a gently sloping suntrap.  After making the relevant soil analysis, the most suitable varieties were selected, which were acquired in the best nurseries in the area of Bordeaux.

For the cellar, we looked for a shady area so that the temperature was more constant.  The land on which the strains settle consists of very gentle hills where the land comes from alluvial (sandy), being very rich in fertile organic matter.

The winery is of new construction, the 2006 harvest being the first to be held in its facilities.  It is designed to produce 20,000 kg. of grape, with possibility of extension; it is equipped with automated wine system, having its own bottling plant and a fleet of 35 units of barrels of French and American oak.
