For six generations the Barreau family has resided in the commune of Grezillac. To this day they continue their tradition of winemaking and own both Château Haut-Garrigaand Château Coitreau. The vineyards are located on the highest slopes overlooking Saint-Émilion.
Château Haut Garriga is unusual in being 100% Semillon, the typical Bordeaux blanc being a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Anyone looking for an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, while not straying too far off the mark, will be well rewarded with this 'immediately likeable' wine from Entre-Deux-Mers.
