The Michel de Montaigne estate is located on the edge of the Dordogne, on the border of the Gironde in the Périgord, between Saint Emilion and Bergerac. Michel de Montaigne is a name that carries, indeed it is in these places that the famous philosopher, humanist and former mayor of Bordeaux lived from 1533 until 1592. In addition to the guided tours of the Tower of Montaigne, the owners produce red, white and rosé wines, which they sell at the site's boutique. At the Domaine we produce two types of reds: the traditional reds aged in stainless steel tanks and the reds "Les Essais" aged in oak barrels. The grape variety for the reds is Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition to the reds we make dry and sweet whites with Sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. And finally we also have in our cellars dry rosé.

The domain has been in organic conversion for 3 years.

Our story

It is undeniable, the illustrious master of the place appreciated the wines, in particular those produced on his Montaigne vines. The Saint-Michel-de-Montaigne plateau, the heart of our Montaigne terroir, is indeed in the geological and climatological continuity of the famous limestone terroirs from which most of the great wines of these prestigious appellations come. Since the acquisition of the Château and its vines in 1860, our family has been dedicated to producing wines that express the qualities of this great terroir. Over the last few decades, we have sought to preserve the diversity of expression of the Montaigne vineyard. Our production of red wines is thus completed by those of dry white wine and sweet white wine. Because we know that it is the latter who, for a long time, has built the reputation of our terroir!

Other little stories

Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, in his book Les Essais, confided: "It is not appropriate to love wine in a moderate way: one might think that you consider this gift of God as a small thing".
