Background

Château du Seuil was acquired by an entrepreneurial Welsh couple, Bob and Sue Watts in 1988. They renovated the Château, built a modern winery and re-established many of the old vineyards. From this point on the wines became known for their very high quality and finesse. Today, Chateau du Seuil is co-owned and managed by Sean and Nicola Allison, following the traditions established by Nicola’s parents Bob and Sue. The estate of Chateau du Seuil encompasses a total of 25 hectares of vines of which approximately 65 percent are planted in red varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and 35 percent in the white varieties of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. There are 15 hectares in the Graves appellation and 10 hectares in the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. The Premières Côtes de Bordeaux vineyards are located on the right bank of the Garonne on a south-east facing slope overlooking the medieval village of Rions.
Average vine age across the whole estate is approximately 30 years. All the wines are organics and the vineyards are worked by hand when possible to ensure best quality. Extensive use is made of the best in traditional winemaking methods coupled with the advantages of modern technologies and temperature control during vinification. The ‘OXOLINE’ system’ is used for barrel fermentation of both reds and whites.
