Château de Goëlane was built in the 1850s under the patronage of François Gusman Gras, a wealthy merchant and fervent supporter of Bonaparte. In 1957, it became the very first of the Castel family’s acquisitions. A major programme of work was undertaken at this time to renew and extend the vineyard and to maintain and preserve this splendid property in the Entredeux-Mers area. The gently undulating vineyard leads from the foot of the little village church in Saint-Léon right up to the château itself, a striking combination of Gothic and Renaissance styles, which was restored and updated in the 19th century under the watchful care of its patron. Château de Goëlane is steeped in history, and lies at the heart of a unique terroir; it is justly proud of its supple, elegant red wines.
