Our estate has been family owned since its beginnings in 1854, when it was bought by Louis Carteyron and his son Jacques. For many years, the production was divided between fruit and wine.

Hubert Carteyron began direct sales of Château Penin in bottle with the 1964 vintage. His son Patrick, representing the fifth generation, took over the estate in 1982 after working as an oenologist for several years. The fruit production side of the farm then disappeared, making way for the vines which were planted with the clear aim of producing quality grapes for wine.

Château Tasting   Full bodied, round and fleshy, harmonious, typical of its gravelly terroir which makes it different from 
the other Bordeaux Supérieur wines.
