The 60 hectare vineyard of Château Gabachot is located in the Bordeaux and Entre-Deux-Mers region(between the Dordogne and Garonne).
In 1956, Chateau Gabachot became the property of the Fernandez family. In 1973 after long years of research, grape selection and hard work, owner Roger Fernandez began to bottle his wines of an excellent level of quality that came to be unanimously recognized.
This know-how has been taken over by his grandson, Jean Fernandez, who has the same respect for tradition and meticulous work, in order to produce the highest quality wine. Efforts are focused on traditional winemaking, while integrating various methods of contemporary enology.
The soil is clay and limestone, ideal for grapes, allowing the retention of winter rains to help the grapes and foliage mature properly all the while benefiting from the warm sunny summers, protecting the vineyard from drought.
Merlot is the dominant grape variety on the property. Cabernet Sauvignon, and a small amount of Malbec grapes are also grown. As for the white grapes, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion, and Sauvignon Gris complete the property. The yearly production of wines is approximately 3600 hectolitres per year.
Faithful to this ethic, Château Gabachot, always in search of excellence, continues
its efforts of quality to satisfy its customers.
