At Château du Payre, we engage our responsability everyday to preserve our traditions and the Earth of our children. Indeed, we choose to listen to the Nature and follow Her ; it means that we have decided to work in connection with the Terroir, which ones includes the climate and the soils. This engagement close to the Nature allows a development of smoother actions towards the environment.
The moderate and coastal climate in Bordeaux Region and the multiple soils (clay, limestone, chalk ...) are ideal for the growth of Merlot (66%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Malbec vines (4%) for pink and red wine production. This climate is also suitable for vine plants of Semillon (75%), Sauvignon Blanc (20%), Muscadelle (5%), and Sauvignon Gris (3%), the white-skinned grapes variety allowed in Bordeaux Region.
Château du Payre loves to produce different styles of wines. Some are light and fruity, others are deeper and
richer in tannins ; some can seduce many of you to enjoy everyday and others will be sharper and more complex to enjoy on dedicated events. Also, few wines can be perfect to drink now, meanwhile,
others will enjoy a longer rest in your cellar...
In addition to respect the Terroir, Château du Payre is part of suistanable approach from the vine plant to the bottle. We have joined Terra Vitis since 2008.
