VINEYARD

Château Haut Canteloup is a family farm. My brother and I are training the fourth generations. We partnered with our parents in 2003 to perpetuate the family business. (From left to right:. Vincent, Catherine, Alexander and Sylvain) The story started in the 70s, when our grandparents have engaged in direct selling.Our parents were then devoted much energy to the development and restructuring of the property. An additional vine island of maternal origin, located in the municipality of Saint Palais de Blaye is attached to the existing vineyard.

The exploitation of Château Haut Canteloup now has 48 hectares. Located in the heart of Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux, we produce red, rosé, white and sparkling wine with a beautiful richness and refinement. Our passion for viticulture pushes us to combine tradition and modernity with a constant concern for quality and respect for the environment.
