Chateau De La Terriere

Beaujolais, France

The Château de la Terrière has stood in Cercié since the 14th century, in the heart of the Beaujolais region. It is one of the oldest estates in the region. After belonging to successive generations of lords, Château de la Terrière was bought in 2003 and important works have been done in the cellars and in the vineyards. 

Facing the Mont Brouilly, the castle and the vines of the estate spread southwards over the rolling sandy-granite hills of Beaujolais. With land predominately in Brouilly and Regnié, the estate also manages small parcels throughout the Beaujolais Villages region, including Fleurie and Moulin-a-Vent. 28 hectacres are planted to Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir.

Today, the estate is managed by Grégory Barbet with the help of Frédéric Maignet, winemaker for the Estate. Their aim is to give the wine the time to fully express itself, to create batches with great potential for ageing.
