Château Amanieu d'Albret is located on the hillsides overlooking the right bank of the Garonne River. The estate extends over 10 hectares of vineyards offering Appellations of Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur which boast a thousand year old viticultural past. The Romans were the first to plant vines on the hillsides. A few centuries later, the English, who were very fond of wine, facilitated the export by river and sea of a large part of the production, which contributed to the enrichment of the wine-producing towns.

 

Sire Amanieu VII owned the lands of the domain from 1228 to 1326. This powerful Gascon lord sat on the council of Kings Edward I and Edward II of England. He was the first of a long line of Gascon lords, allied to the English, to benefit from royal largesse.

Château Amanieu d'Albret is delighted to follow this heritage. The team uses winemaking methods that combine modern techniques and ancestral know-how to offer you wines of unique quality in these appellations. The wine is bottled at the property. Since 2018 the estate is certified as High Environmental Value.
