A UNIQUE HISTORY

In 1999 Bordeaux Sciences Agro, the National School of Agronomic Sciences, brought Château Luchey-Halde back to life after it had disappeared 80 years earlier. Vines were planted on the land of the current estate from the days of the Roman Empire. Over the centuries many estates disappeared following various crises and urban expansion.

In 1920, the Luchey estate was snapped up in turn by the French Ministry of Defence which turned it into a military training area, thus preserving it from urbanisation. When the French Army sold the land in 1999, Bordeaux Science Agro spotted the opportunity to start a vineyard from scratch and to showcase its expertise.
