Château Doisy-Védrines

The estate is located in the municipality of Barsac in the area Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). The origin is in 1677, when Jean Raymond took over an agricultural property called Doisic (later Doisy). The first vineyards were probably created by descendants. The Védrines family became the owner of the property in 1704 through marriage. In the first half of the 19th century, the property was divided into three, namely Château Doisy-Daëne. Chateau Doisy-Dubroca and Château Doisy-Védrines. In 1850, most of the property still belonged to Madame Dubosq, probably 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 remained in the hands of the Boireau family for a long time. It was only at the age of 94 that Madame Teyssonneau left the management to her grandson Pierre Castéja. Today Olivier Castéja heads the company. Although he is a member of this famous family, his company is not part of the 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 barriques. The second wine is called "Château La Tour-Védrines". A red wine is produced under "La Tour-Védrines".
