Located 18 km from Pomerol and St-Emilion, “Vignobles Villemon” is an AOC/AOP/IGP vineyard on an area of 20 hectares (50 acres). Close to the river Isle that runs through Libourne – the clay-limestone soil is perfect for cultivating the traditional Bordeaux grape varieties, Merlot and Cabernet. With a limited production of 50,000 bottles per year, “Vignobles Villemon” can guarantee quality over quantity. We work with the best oenologists in the region to make modern wines that benefit from the geography and history of the Bordeaux Appelations.
Great wine can only be made with great grapes! Understanding that great wine can only be made with great grapes is the primary principal in winemaking. Therefor the growing of grapes and the biodiversity that surrounds is of utmost importance. The subsequent process of picking, fermentation and ageing involes many different choices and outcomes. We at Château Villemon consider ourselves fortunate to be part of the worlds largest and most prestigious wine growing region. This allows us access to both the oldest and the most innovative techniques and materials to make great wine.
Cross pollination between plants and insects is nothing new, however the proper management of land that is used to harvest any kind of fruit or vegetable is delicate to say the least.
At Vignobles Villemon a strategy has been under way since 2012 in order to help our vineyard flourish in more ways than one – the cross pollination of insects/animals and their surrounding flora and fauna helps sustain a biosphere that is both advantageous to the current growing season and sustainable for long term grape production.
