100 hectares of land including 65 hectares of vines planted with a majority of Merlot on the slopes and clay-limestone plateaus of Fronsac. This château, whose history is very rich and full of treasures, and the most surprising is undoubtedly its underground cellars, dug in the 18th and 19th centuries, of 8 hectares where we store our wines as soon as they are bottled... The conditions are perfect for wine ageing: 13°C all year round, humidity close to 100% and total darkness... A place to discover where 5 kinds of wines rest.

Our story

Many stories and anecdotes, difficult to choose only one, the ideal for that is to come and visit the property. Be aware that this property is a succession of coincidences.... For example: Mr. René Mortier-Quarré, owner at the beginning of the 20th century, decided at the time to buy a secondary property to enlarge the Château de La Rivière. He then bought Domaine de Pasquette and Clos Laborie, which he sold in 1920 to Mr Jean Balluteaud. In 1960, the latter sold the property to Mr. Jacques Borie, who owned it until 1994. His ambition was to improve his wine and he created a second wine which he named "Le Prince du Château de La Rivière". In 1994, Mr. Jean Leprince bought Château de La Rivière... We could continue this way but come and visit us because the story begins in 769 with Charlemagne.

Other little stories

Being a winegrower? it is a way of life that combines a passion for the land, a passion for life, a passion for taste and a passion for sharing and this famous "passion" is transmitted from generation to generation... Defining the wine that most resembles us is extremely complex, it is rather necessary to see and understand that there are wines for each moment of our lives, each occasion according to the people with whom we share it "this moment".

Recently for the new year, we opened a 50-year-old bottle, harvested in 1966, this Château de La Rivière, as an imperial was surprising, confirming that our wines have the promised aging capacity. A delight that was demonstrated at the end of the meal. This beautiful 6-litre bottle was completely empty. The oldest bottle we have is a double-magnum (3 litres) from 1928 vinified at the time by Mr Jean Balluteaud, almost 90 years ago!
