Château Villefranche is recognised as one of the oldest wine estates in the Sauternes region. It has been in our family since the mid XVII century and is catalogued of the archives of Edition Féret since 1840.
Located near the Ciron stream, the estate extends over the Haut-Barsac plateau with it's rich variety of predominate argilo-calcareous soil types.
The grape varieties used to produce our white wine include the region's three major white grape varieties which produce delicate and fine wine with notes of vanilla and nutmeg. Our white wines combine elegance with nervousness in a sublte balance. Owing to their delicate and nuanced bouquet, our red wines often leave a favourable impression at wine tasting events (the Hachette Guide, for example). Round, supple and with excellent structure, they offer a smooth finish highlighted by expressive aromas of red berries.
