Château de Bordes-Quancard
Bordeaux - 2012
Acquired in 1948, Château de Bordes reflects the deep rooting of the company in the Bordeaux terroir and its new momentum from the middle of the 20th century. Situated halfway between the company’s head office in Carbon Blanc and the historic estate of Terrefort in Cubzac-les-Pont, the château originally housed a stud farm. The perfect link between a family, wine and horses!
