Château Couronneau

Château Couronneau enjoys the rare privilege of an idyllic location for cultivating vines. It sits atop the highest pinnacle of the Gironde, a lofty 185 meters above sea level, where the clay-limestone soils, rich in active iron, nurture the vines and enable the authentic terroir to shine through. Here, a dedicated team of six individuals, guided by Christophe and Grégoire Piat, breathes life into the estate each day. Their extensive expertise, coupled with state-of-the-art equipment continuously updated, ensures they work under optimal conditions. But Château Couronneau is more than a vineyard; it's a place where the well-being and safety of all are paramount. The vineyard thrives in every aspect because they firmly believe that its success is intrinsically tied to the dedication and passion of those who toil there. A testament to the fusion of nature, tradition, and the people who nurture its legacy.
