Small Family Estate for four generations, we are pleased to welcome visitors for a vineyard tour and a tasting.

About the winery
Small Family Estate for 4 generations based in Francs village and appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux (7km far from St Emilion). Bernadette and Joseph will be delighted to welcome you in their humble cellar. They took over the property in 1984 and created their first bottle/label to honor the founder: Amand Puyanche (the great grandfather of Bernadette). Today the range is larger and they will be happy to introduce their special selection. You will find some nice red wine, but dry white as well and some monovarietal wine. Their vines are not certified organic but for more than 10 years they reduced treatment and work very closely to the nature, usually agroforestry. Terroir is the priority, preserve the environment and protect the vineyard from diseases. They would be glad to explain you their philosophy, their way of work, their passion!

History & Geography
Created in 1900 by Amand Puyanche, he started with a couple of hectares at this time. Unfortunately he did worked a lot in his vines because he has been called for the 1st World War in Verdun and died there is 1918. His young daughter took over, then her youngest son, André (Bernadette’s father) took over and worked in the vineyard. Since Bernadette and Joseph took over in 1984, the all production was sold to the Cooperative cellar of Francs. It was Bernadette and Joseph’s project to develop the bottling sales and they started with the name Chateau Puyanché to honor the founder. They started with 7 hectares (heritage) and they have now 50 hectares.
