Génissac is a small village perched at an altitude of more than 40 metres, the latter bordering the municipalities of Libourne, Cadarsac and Arveyres. But it is distinguished from them by its exceptional terroir! Indeed, as the vineyard is located on gravelly plateaus, this allows the vines to take root in the stones that make up the soil. Thus, in the long term, this advantageous situation gives the wine an exceptional maturity.
Château Caminade Haut Guérin is located in this small village of Génissac, and faces prestigious appellations such as Pomerol or Saint Emilion. Separated by the Dordogne only, the Château has shown that it has its place in this prestigious environment. The vineyard extends over about fifty hectares where three main grape varieties can be distinguished: Merlot at 80%, Cabernet Sauvignon at 10% and finally Cabernet Franc at 10% as well.
Château Caminade Haut Guérin has been a family business since the early 1930s. Originally, we find the two families, Thibaut and Caminade at the head of the estate. The former owned the vines of Cardonnet, which extended over a plateau on the heights of Genissac, whose terroir benefited from a clayey-gravelly soil. Christiane's grandfather and father - Pierre's grandmother - replanted everything after the auction sale of the cellar and vines. They then expanded the estate by buying plots of land in the surrounding area. Thus the estate is now a well-structured operation.
From now on, it is as a family that we manage the farm, which has long been divided by two families. Pierre, grandson, his partner Léa and also Caroline, granddaughter, are in charge of the continuity of the vineyard. Not without the support of the rest of the family and especially Didier who takes care of all the marketing. The family has been perpetuating the business with its know-how and know-how for 80 years now.
Being a winegrower is not in itself a profession, it is a passion that becomes the guiding principle of our lives. We live for our grapes and our wine. It is our pride, our work! This is what the profession of winegrower represents in the heart of the between two seas in Bordeaux!
