CHÂTEAU SUBILAUX

My father created the farm of Château Subilaux ! I took over the 7-hectare estate in 1998 when it was 95%-planted with white grapes meant for sparkling wine. Through the years, I expanded and modernized the vineyard with care until it reached 27 hectares of vines today. Since 2021, I have decided to convert to organic farming, wishing to make my farm more sustainable and environment-friendly.
