"The vineyard is located in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers appellation in the commune of LADAUX. It’s a family property since 5 generations which is among the oldest from Bordeaux. Antoine BARTHE was the creator of this vineyard, buying his first vines in 1894. Between 1894 and 1907, he bought 2.59 hectares which allowed him to live. Henri BARTHE, son of Antoine Barthe, continued this art of living by extending the domain throughout his life. In 1963, Henri Barthe donated the vines to his onw daughter, Marie-Anne Valentine BARTHE and it was his son, Henri Robert MAUBRAC born in 1936 who would continue to live this profession for several years until two new heirs : Marie-Helene MAUBRAC born in 1968 and Christine MAUBRAC born in 1971. Marie-Helene did not choose to make her life as her ancestors but still kept her vineyard shares. On the other hand, her sister Christine, in love with this profession and this life, decided to continue the adventure with her father. In 1989, Marie-Helene married him under the comunal regime with Eric GUERIN, also a Ladocian family who had always dreamed of wine growing. Two years after the death of Henri Robert Maubrac in 1998, Christine Maubrac and Eric Guerin joined by creating EARL Vignobles Maubrac Guerin. At this time, they had only 23 hectares of vines versus almost 75 hectares today. Eric Guerin very invested took his role right away very heart and without waiting enlarged the vineyard considerably with the help of Christine who has always been in the profession. In 1999, the beginning of the sales in bottle was a revelation because today, we sell nearly 450 000 bottles every year. Château PALENE and Château LE FAURE are both made from grapes grown for several years." -Winery
