At Château Lamothe in the commune of Haux in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyard, we cultivate 75 ha of vineyards on limestone-clay slopes. These grapes are directly processed on our estate where we produce 500,000 bottles a year. Our family has stewarded this estate for four generations, and sustainability has always been key. Our mother still welcomes guests and oversees the Château, while our daughter is the one who drew the logo for the bottle labels when she was five. We also named our main wine brand after her: Valentine. As a Bayer ForwardFarm, we have the opportunity to work with leading experts who help us to improve our farming practice in order to better protect the environment and increase our productivity.
