Vignoble Galineau is a vineyard perched on one of the highest hillsides in the village, at an altitude of 125 metres, between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, with northern and southern exposure. It covers 51 hectares (126 acres) of red varietals (60% Merlot – 5% Cabernet Franc – 25% Cabernet Sauvignon – 8% Malbec – 2% Petit Verdot) and 3 hectares (7.5 acres) of white grapes on a single plot. The soil is clay limestone and loamy clay.
For the last two decades, we have been engaged in sustainable wine-making (a strategy that incorporates environmental protection into the production process). Our compliance with environmental winery standards earned us HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale) certification and ISO14001. Some of our wine-making work, like removing side shoots and leaves from the vines, is done both manually and mechanically.
Our white wine with Sauvignon Blanc is now certified oraganic Agriculture. This conversion brings us personal satisfaction, even more proud to do our work as a winemaker while respecting biodiversity and the environment in order to produce natural and authentic wines, a reflection of our terroir.
