Winery Profile

In 15th century, The first vines were planted on a limestone-clay hillside, north-east of Saint-Emillion. In 1823 the Esquisaud family acquired the estate of Chateau Faugeres and Chateau Peby-Faugeres. In 1987, the land was inherited by Pierre-Bernard Guisez and with the support of Michel Rolland, the estate was transformed and awarded Saint-Emillion Grand Cru appellation status. The estate was bought out by Swiss entrepreneur and art connoisseur Silvio Denz, who initially made his name in the world of perfume. He is now not only the proud owner of the Lalique glass company, but has also extended his portfolio to a number of vineyards, including Château Chambrun, AOC Lalande-de-Pomerol and Montepeloso in Tuscany, Italy.
