Château Hostens-Picant:
Our 42 hectares vineyard is situated 24 Kilometers east of Saint-Emilion. We acquired it late 1986. Before that the vineyard belonged to the same family for the past 90 years and was already mentioned in the 1864 Issue of “Le Guide Feret : Bordeaux et ses vins” under the name of Chateau de Granges.

Our 42 hectares vineyard is situated 24 Kilometers east of Saint-Emilion. We acquired it late 1986. Before that the vineyard belonged to the same family for the past 90 years and was already mentioned in the 1864 Issue of “Le Guide Feret : Bordeaux et ses vins” under the name of Chateau de Granges. However it has to be mentioned that the vineyard was engaged with a “Cooperative” from 1946 to 1989. After the acquisition in 1986, the new owners, Nadine et Yves Picant made during 3 years different trials of vinification to finally decide to build a brand new winery ans start to produce their own wine in 1990. The winery is totally equipped with stainless steel thermo-controlled vats and a micro-oxygenation equipment for a total capacity of 3600 hectoliters with an additional cellar of 700 barrels. In 2007, in order to improve quality of its wines, the Hostens-Picant Castle undertook a program of new plantations and complantations to pass from 3.200 to 6.000 feet ha. The vineyards are producing 2 different types of wines under 2 different labels which are: - CHATEAU HOSTENS-PICANT - CHATEAU de GRANGENEUVE For CHATEAU HOSTENS-PICANT which is our first quality wine, we are using the Appellation “Sainte-Foy Bordeaux”. This Appellation has existed since 1929, but few people were using it until recently. We were pioneering for a new launching and now the number of Winemakers implicated is growing year after year. CHATEAU DE GRANGENEUVE our second wine is also using Appellation “Sainte-Foy Bordeaux”. Read less
