Château LA GRANGE CLINET is located in the village of St
Caprais, 15 km south of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Garonne river, in the appellation Premières Côtes de Bordeaux.
In the past, LA GRANGE CLINET was part of the very large property of the Barons Prom, Chateau La Cure (18th century) of more than 350 hectares.
The Haury Family, the current owners, bought in 1983 one large parcel of 48 Hectares, south of the village, which had rested as meadows and wild woods since the 1960’s.
Grapevines were planted – starting in 1984 - with varietals recommended by Emile Peynaud, the father of modern Bordeaux wine making.
Production of the estate is 180 000 bottles a year, from an average harvest of 47 Hl/hectare or 220 cases per acre.
The actual estate is now 123 acres wide, located on 3 lengthy hills, east/west oriented, and centered around a 19.8 acre wildlife sanctuary with a pond of 1 ½ acres, 8.2 acres of forest, and the rest in shrubs and natural meadows.
The 70 acres of grapevines surrounding this reserve are mixed with other natural meadows.
All of this forms a very rich and interactive biotope, creating a friendly environmental culture for the grapevine.
