Château de Prade

Côtes de Castillon

The vineyard:

Bernard Fournier, a winemaker in Belves-de-Castillon, has been making organic wine since 1970! He is one of the pioneers of organic farming in the Gironde.

The domain’s 18 hectares are ideally on south and south-east facing slopes.  

Wine making:

After manual harvesting and complete de-stemming, the grapes macerate for 3 weeks before being drawn off. The wine is then fermented in concrete vats for around 8 months before being barrelled in French oak for a short time.

ABV: 13°

Tasting notes:
