Since the 16th century, the successive generations of the PITRAY family have always endeavored to harmonize at best tradition with progress, so as to produce wine whose high quality is recognized through out the world. Château de Pitray premier estate wine, produces a deliciously smooth, round and generous wine that delivers immediate gratification. Currently 30% of the wine produced is aged in oak barrels, and in the coming years 50% of the wine will be oak aged. The Pitray Vineyards are planted on the clay-limestone plateau of Gardegan. The varietals of grapes consist of merlot grapes (75%), cabernet and cabernet franc (25%). The vines, with an average age of 29 years, total about 36 hectares (65 plus acres) and produce an average of 240.000 bottles of a great Bordeaux red wine, carrying the appellation “Côtes de Castillon.” The doors of PITRAY are open to all those wishing to learn more about our wine. The present descendants, Count and Countess de BOIGNE are happy to show their visitors the fruit of an uninterrupted family tradition, destined to the production of high quality wines.
