The Vineyard of the Château du Payre is located at Cardan, 30 minutes drive from Bordeaux and 5 min from Cadillac. The Château is located on Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux appellation on the right bank of the Garonne River. The combination of the terroir and the grape varieties used results in the production of a wide range of AOC wines (controlled designation of origin).
We have 40 hectares in this beautiful green, hilly region. Depending on the plots, the different types of soils are : gravelly clay, sandy clay and clay loam soil.
The Château du Payre and its vineyard located close to Cadillac change with the seasons and evolve with an oceanic climate defined by a mild and slightly humid winter and a fresh summer. During autumn season, the morning fog helps the development of the Botrytis Cinerea (noble rot).
