Winery Profile

The town of Sancerre has a long and eventful history. As far back as the 10th century AD the Count of Champagne chose this strategic position to build a fortified castle which would command the Loire Valley.

Following the Wars of Religion in 1612 the castle was almost completely destroyed and was not re-built until 1874. In 1919 the castle, along with part of the vineyards, was purchased by Louis Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle who was instrumental in building the reputation of Sancerre wines.

Still owned by the Societe des Produits Marnier-Lapostolle, it is here that the exclusive estate-bottled Sancerre wine is made and matured. It is the only wine which can be sold under the exclusive name ‘Château de Sancerre’.
