Château Romer-du-Hayot

The winery is located in the municipality of Fargues in the area Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). At the beginning of the 19th century, it belonged to a Marquis Montalier and subsequently experienced numerous changes of ownership and dismemberment through inheritance. The du Hayot family bought several parts in 1939 and put them together under the name Château Romer-du-Hayot. A small second part remained under the name Château Romer with 5 acres in other possession. The current owner, André du Hayot, later leased the Château Romer and now manages the two estates together. Due to a motorway construction, the château was demolished, the wine is produced on the also belonging to the family Château Guiteronde (Barsac). In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 it was classified as "Deuxième Cru Classé" (Sauternes). The vineyards cover 16 hectares and are planted with Semillon (70%), Sauvignon Blanc (25%) and Muscadelle (5%). The noble sweet wine matures in barriques for 12 months.
