Located in the Côtes de Bourg, on the right bank of the Gironde, the vines were first planted here by the Romans. The prestigious 17th century manor house, Château Eyquem, was once the home of Louis d’Eyquem, a relative of the famous philosopher, Michel Eyquem de Montaigne. The Château has a magnificent panoramic view of the Gironde estuary where the Dordogne and the Garonne rivers meet. The vineyard has a fine clay-limestone soil and temperate microclimate thanks to the nearby rivers. Owners since the 20th century, we have refurbished the Château and expanded the vineyard. In keeping with our respect to the environment, vines at Château Eyquem are grown according to the precepts of sustainable viticulture.
