Located in the Pomerol appellation, Chateau La Cabanne has belonged to Jean-Pierre Estager and his family since 1952. This historic property boasts an impressive legacy, with vines cultivated there since the Gallo-Roman era. The name of Chateau La Cabanne originates from the cabins of the former Serfs and Settlers working in the vineyards at the time. Following a fire in 2010, Chateau La Cabanne underwent a complete renovation. Since 2011, the property has been equipped with high-tech equipment, allowing for the production of wines ranked at the height of the appellation.
