About Barouillet

South West, France

Château Barouillet has been owned by the family for 8 generations, our research couldn’t go any further back as some transmissions were made by women and therefore names changed due to marriage. Nonetheless it is sure that the winery has existed for a very long time and our ancestors have loved and pampered this land.

We make the wine the same way we work in the vines: respecting the raw material (grapes and wine), using a lifting conveyor, and an inflatable winepress with a closed cage and soft central drains for the harvest.

We also want to limit as much as possible the additives, the only one that I authorize is SO2 in a homeopathic way, so we adopt an impeccable hygiene in the winery. It is risky not to use selected yeasts but it is also a proof of the originality of the land and initial characteristics that makes our appellations. The wines are not filtered for the vast majority. As with the vine, we adapt to each wine according to its terroir its vintage and its destiny.
