Chateau Beauregard

The winery is located in the municipality Pomerol or area of the same name (Bordeaux). The origin goes back to the 12th century, when the Maltese order of knights established a residence here. In 1793 it was acquired by Bonaventure Berthomieux. This had the beautiful château built. Part of the vineyards was built in the 18th century Château Figeac acquired. After several changes of ownership, the estate was bought by Crédit Foncier de France in 1991. The vineyards with 17 hectares of vineyards are planted with Merlot (60%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 18 to 24 months in 60% new barriques. The second wine is called "Benjamin de Beauregard". The American architect Daniel Guggenheim (1856-1930) was so enthusiastic during a visit after the First World War that he had a 1: 1 copy built on Long Island (New York State) and called it "Mille Fleurs".
