Grand Cru Classé en 1855
Claire Villars Lurton
Gabriel Ferrière was the founder of the estate and he was a member of the royal court in the XVIIIth century.

In 1855, Château Ferrière was classified third Growth. In 1988, the Villars-Merlaut family bought Ferrière from Alexis Lichine (also owner of Château Lascombes) and took over winemaking there in 1992 when the previous lease came to an end.

With its 20 hectares, mainly located on the land of Margaux and its terroir made of deep gravels from the Garonne River, Château Ferrière is one of the smallest of the Classified Growths in 1855.

The size of the vineyard, combined with a beautiful terroir, make Château Ferrière a rare and much sought-after wine.

Claire Villars Lurton is the owner of this estate and has undertaken an in-depth renovation of the winemaking facilities, as well as gradually converting to biodynamic viticulture. Ferrière is certified organic in 2015. With the greatest of care and attention, Claire Villars Lurton does her utmost to reflect Château Ferrière’s outstanding terroir in her wine.
