Heritage

Château Mayne Blanc is located on the hills of Lussac Saint-Émilion, and enjoys a stunning Nature’s gift of adequate sunshine, mild climate and naturally ideal soil. For centuries, Château Mayne Blanc winemakers’ respect for its terroir, passion and dedication have contributed to its success and fame.

As early as 1961, Château Mayne Blanc has been highly respected due to its unique wine quality. A new owner decided to innovate and started the construction of underground cellars and invested in top quality oak barrels. Château Mayne Blanc has gained its fame since then! And it never stopped innovating and improving its winemaking techniques.

In 1983, Château Mayne Blanc reached a new peak after the hard work of several generations. The countless positive reviews and numerous awards sealed its reputation of a charming wine, reflecting a century of crafted and passionate winemaking.

Until 2014, Château Mayne Blanc has welcomed its new proprietor and he strives to continue the estate’s ambition in achieving excellence.
