This family owned and run Estate is housed in a 13th century convent that was built for the monks of the order of Saint Antoine, who occupied this Abbey for five centuries. In 1985, Geoffroy and Martine de Roquefeuil settled on his family property and revived the wine and hospitality tradition of the Antonins monks. With the soul of a countryman and a winemaker, Geoffroy brought the vineyards and cellar back to life. Lover of nature and concerned about preserving it, Geoffroy and Martine (and now their son, Antoine) have worked tirelessly to preserve the terroir of their Estate adopting strict sustainable farming practices.
The Château des Antonins takes root on the left bank of the Garonne, at the gates of Graves and Sauternes. The vineyard covers 25 hectares of red vines (65% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc) on a silico-gravelly rump and 5 hectares of White vines (80% Sauvignon, 20% Semillon) on sandy loam soil. The management of the vineyard is part of an environmental approach for a thoughtful and sustainable agriculture. The entire estate has obtained High Environmental Value Level 3 (HVE3) certification since the 2018 harvest.
