Beginning in the 1960s, André BESSETTE restructured the entire vineyard (grape varieties and grapes more qualitative as well as the drainage of all the plantations) .In the 80's, the vineyard
extends over 20 Hectares, a cellar allowing to receive Stainless steel tanks is built.
In 1999, the son of André, Alain, after working in a beautiful property of Bordeaux for more than 10 years, joined his father in order to perpetuate the quality of work carried out by the latter
and to bring his experience. It gives a new impetus to the CHATEAU LA VERRIERE.
For 10 years the castle grew with new plots very qualitative and modernized. A new barrel cellar underground, a cellar of bottling and conditioning are now necessary for the vinification and breeding of the wine of the property. Today, the estate of about sixty hectares holds all the modern equipment required (control of temperatures, pneumatic press, micro-oxygenation) to the development of a high quality wine.
For the BESSETTTE family, the vines are cultivated by combining quality production with respect for the environment and the terroir.
