At Château Peyfaures, we believe in putting the grapes first. This philosophy permeates everything we do here, from sustainable organic practices in the vineyard, natural fermentations in the winery, and a deft hand with oak to enhance rather than mask the flavors of the fruit.
Seven generations have cared for the estate, with last in the line, Laurent Godeau staying on to work with the Moraes family, who purchased the Château in April of 2017.
Together, they continue to carry on the family’s traditions while continuing to raise the quality with every vintage.
Most of the work is done in the field. Biodiversity is prized as a way to keep the vines in harmony with the land, as evidenced by the lush grasses found between the vines. The vineyards are beautifully situated on clay-limestone soils in eastern Entre-Deux-Mer, just across the Dordogne river from Saint Emilion and Pomerol. Like these two world-class regions, Château Peyfaures focuses on Merlot, blending in Cabernet Franc and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon to create a wine with lush dark fruit and layered complexity.
