Vignobles Garzaro

(17 ratings)
Fell into it as a child

Pierre-Etienne's first childhood memories are meals at the end of the harvest! As you will have understood, the vines naturally imposed themselves on him to become his passion and then his profession. Its key word: respect for the terroirs and what they offer us. As when he kindly quotes Saint-Exupéry to explain his working philosophy: "We do not inherit the land of our ancestors, but we borrow it from our children".

(33) Gironde

Château Le Prieur is a property acquired in 1912 by the Garzaro Family. There were only 4 ha of vines in the Entre-deux-Mers. After four generations of work, the Garzaro vineyards now cultivate 60 hectares in the Entre-deux-Mers, 6 hectares in St-Emilion and 4 hectares in Pomerol.

Located on magnificent clay-limestone hills well exposed to the sweetness of the Bordeaux climate, the vines of Château Le Prieur allow the noble grape varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon to give their best. In Pomerol and St Emilion, the deep, gravelly sands allow these same grape varieties to produce wines with character.

Our story

Falling into the pot from birth, I naturally took over the estate in 1989, after studying viticulture. Joined by a first brother in 1999, then by a second in 2005, three of us manage this magnificent family estate. From 80% of the volume sold in bulk and 20% in bottles in the 1980s, we have increased to 90% in bottles and 10% in bulk, favouring a particular French clientele that we meet during the 35 exhibitions held in France. This allows us to expand into the greatest terroirs of Bordeaux, Pomerol and St-Emilion Grand Cru.

The meeting that impressed me the most was with Gilles Pauquet, consulting oenologist among the greatest of the Libourne region (Cheval blanc, Gazin, L'évangile...) and who has now joined our adventure by becoming an oenologist for our vineyards. Without it we would never have achieved this level of quality!

Other little stories

My favourite plot is located at the top of the hillside, one of the highest points in the Gironde, from where I dominate the entire property and can see my Libournais vines (with a twin of course!). I like to go there after a few days of living room, it's relaxing and refreshing to see as far as the eye allows. Our terroir is an infinite richness that can be found in our wines. But be careful not to damage it, you have to be respectful of nature and what it gives you!
