Chateau La Verriere
After the total destruction of the vineyard in the 19th century by phylloxera, it took thirty years to find a vineyard capable of producing high quality wines.Since the 1960s, AndrÃ© BESSETTE has restructured all the vineyards (grape varieties and rootstocks more qualitative as well as the drainage of all the plantations). In the 80s, the vineyard extends on 20 Hectares, a cellar allowing to receive stainless steel tanks is built.In 1999, Alain's son, Alain, after having worked in a beautiful property in Bordeaux for more than 10 years, joined his father in order to sustain the quality of his work and bring him his experience. It gives a new impetus to CHATEAU LA VERRIERE.For 10 years the ChÃ¢teau is growing with new and very qualitative plots and is modernizing. A new underground barrel cellar, a bottling and packaging cellar are built for the vinification and aging of the property's wine.Today, the estate covers 75 hectares and holds all the necessary modern equipment (temperature control, pneumatic press, micro-oxygenation) to produce a high quality wine.For the BESSETTTE family, the cultivation of vines is done by combining quality production with respect for the environment and the terroir.
