Garcin Cathiard
Château Haut-Bergey, with its bartizans topped by conical slate towers, is reminiscent of Sleeping Beauty’s castle... an impression reinforced by the pink cellars.

The estate dates back to the 15th century. Owner of Haut Bergey since 1991, Sylviane Garcin Cathiard was determined to lavish the same care and attention on her estate as the greatest châteaux in Bordeaux.

This charming property now applies rigorous standards and the necessary technical means to achieve the vineyard’s full potential. Soil surveys were done on every plot, enabling each one to receive tailor-made treatment using natural, traditional methods. The grapes are meticulously handpicked and optical sorting retains only perfectly ripe, healthy fruit. Small stainless steel vats are propitious to precision winemaking adapted to grapes from each plot. The ageing cellar houses barrels that are either new or used for one previous vintage. The proportion varies from year to year.

Château Haut-Bergey produces an elegant red wine with fine structure and an outstanding personality, as well as a delicate, elegant white wine.
