Château Villefranche

Château Villefranche is one of the oldest wineries in the Sauternes. 7 generations have succeeded each other since the French Revolution. The origin of the winery’s name goes back to the founder Mr Jean Gray, originally from Maleville in Aveyron, formerly Rouergue. After his marriage in 1793 with a Barsacaise, (Coming from the place Barsac in the Sauternes) he bought a piece of land at the current location of the castle. He named it “Villefranche”.

“Jean Gray says Villefranche” is therefore in reference to the historical city of his birthplace Aveyron, but also because of the nickname given by the inhabitants of Barsac.

The domain is located on the plateau of Haut-Barsac, near the Ciron. The vineyard has a wide range of soils with a predominance of clay and limestone. Chateau Villefranche still produces their typical dessert wine entirely manually and according to the methods that they used in the past.

Quality is always the priority. The grape varieties used for the white wines are the three major white grape varieties of the region (Sémillon, Sauvignon, Muscadelle). The result is delicate, elegant (vanilla, nutmeg) and very tasty wines with a fantastic balance.
