The impressive Château Ducru-Beaucaillou sits on the banks of the Gironde Estuary in the appellation of Saint-Julien.
The 245 hectares estate, with 100 hectares planted with vines, has been owned and operated by the Borie family, who resides at the estate, for over 60 years.
Ducru-Beacaillou’s unique name is derived from the “beau caillou”, French for “beautiful stones” which are abundant in the soils of the estate.
The Gironde has moderating effect on the climate of the estate creating milder winters and cooler summers, which allows the grapes to have a more homogeneous growing season that favours the production of a “grand vin”.
Project developed by Defranceschi and its internal department of Italian designers.
