At FURT, the wine passion has united our family since 1895, firstly as winegrowers.
Our history finds its roots in the Entre-Deux-Mers geographical region, halfway between Bordeaux and St Emilion, where our family has owned CHATEAU LA GRAVE DE BERTIN for generations. Our vineyard spreads onto 19,4 hectares (48 acres) of chalky-clay soils and still is our everyday pride.
Among beautiful scenery, this region is where we find the “Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur” Appellation, largest appellation in the Bordeaux vineyard.
This location truly is a key point to our vineyard: underground water sources bring freshness and vitality to the vines; the Pyrenees Mountains and the Landes Forest act like natural barriers to bad weather; tempered oceanic seasons brought by the Gulf Stream help the natural course of the vines.
