Château Garraud Lalande de Pomerol AOC

Created by the Count de Kermartin in the mid-19th century, Garraud’s vineyards appear in the 1868 edition of Le Féret (Bordeaux wine directory). Léon Nony bought the vineyard in 1939 and started to renovate and expand it. After his death in 1959, his son, Michel, then his grandson, Jean-Marc, continued his work. This is the ‘First Wine” from a vineyard of around 36 hectares located on the geological prolongation of the Pomerol plateau.
