Château Terte de Belvès - Anglais

The Bourron estate was created in 1842 by Pierre Fauchey-Balguerie, a prominent merchant and shipowner of Bordeaux. Bourron is located on the historic site of the Battle of Castillon, on a high plateau dominating the Dordogne. The architecture of the château, its beleveder and its park filled with exotic trees are a reflexion of its founder appeal for travels.

Diane and Olivier Sulzer acquired this gem of an estate in 2012 and decide to produce once again some wine on this long forgotten terroir.

They build a winery next to the château, restructure the estate and recreated.
