The reputation of the estate Sainte Marie goes back many centuries ago when already in 1874, the Feret (one of the most famous Bordeaux wine encyclopedia) mentioned the production of the estate i.e 8 barrels in red and white wines.
Located in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers area, Chateau Sainte Marie enjoys an optimal geographical situation. The vineyards, ideally exposed stretches over two sunny hills, among the highest points in the Gironde department. Old vines producing perfect grapes, among which semillon and merlot older than 100 years are the guarantee of an always more quality-oriented production.
Since 1956, the Dupuch-Mondon family runs the estate with passion and determination and a particular attachment to the typicity and originality of the terroir.
