Château Doisy-Védrines

The winery is located in the municipality of Barsac in the area Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). The origin dates back to 1677, when Jean Raymond took over an agricultural estate called Doisic (later Doisy). The first vineyards were probably created only by descendants. The family Védrines was 1704 by marriage owner of the property. In the first half of the 19th century, the estate was divided into three parts, namely in Château Doisy-Daëne. Château Doisy-Dubroca and Château Doisy-Védrines. In 1850, most of the estate still belonged to Madame Dubosq, presumably a direct descendant of the Védrines family. In 1851 she sold Château Doisy-Védrines to the Boireau family, direct ancestors of the Castéja family. Anyway, at the Bordeaux Classification 1855 (for Sauternes) all three goods classified in second place (Deuxième Cru Classé).

Château Doisy-Védrines stayed in the hands of the Boireau family for a long time. Only at the ripe old age of 94 did Madame Teyssonneau hand over the management to her grandson Pierre Castéja. Today, Olivier Castéja heads the business. Although he is a member of this famous family, his farm does not count as a family empire Borie-Manoux, The vineyards cover 26 hectares of vineyards, with the varieties Sémillon (85%) and Sauvignon Blanc (15%) are planted. The long-lasting noble sweet wine is aged for 18 months in 70% new oak barrels. The second wine is called "Château La Tour-Védrines". A red wine is produced under "La Tour-Védrines".
