Located in the Castillon region on Bordeaux's right bank region, Château Beynat is a century old. This is an area that is becoming a reliable source of rich yet great value red wines. They work with 17 hectares of vines in total.
The chateau is certified organic and in fact working biodynamically since 2015, with no chemicals used in the vineyards and an emphasis on herbal treatments and working in tandem with lunar cycles.
The grapes are sorted three times to only keep the healthiest bunches. The whole bunches are vatted and after few days, the fermentation starts naturally with indigenous yeasts. Regular pigeage and remontage is carried out to extract colour and tannins. The wine then is aged in cement vat for 18 months.
