Description
Château Haut-Brion has one of the longest and most interesting histories of any Bordeaux wine château. The property derives its name from an ancient Celtic term “Briga.” Loosely translated, this means a rise or mount in the land. This unique terroir was first prized for growing grapes to produce Bordeaux wine close to 600 years ago. The vines were planted to produce wine for a local chapel that was founded in Bordeaux by the Menuts Monks to remember the recently deceased Monk, Johan d’Artiguemale. However, the earliest known documents proving wine from the future vineyards of Haut-Brion on a yearly basis date back to 1521, when the estate was known as Aubrion. This makes Château Haut-Brion the oldest, continuously working winery and luxury brand in Bordeaux.
