    East of Saint-Emilion, on the right bank of Bordeaux, Chateau de Pressac overlooks the town of Saint-Etienne de Lisse. An important stronghold during the Hundred Years’ War, there since the advent of Bordeaux viticulture, Chateau de Pressac is a historic reference in the region. Since 1997, the Quenin family has had the honor of managing the Pressac vineyard and estate. Thanks to their philosophy of excellence and their passion for this exceptional terroir, they have elevated Château de Pressac to the rank of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru in 2012.
