Estate::

In 2007, UG Bordeaux joined the Caves of Sauveterre de Guyenne, Saint-Pey-Génissac and Blasimon. Today 250 co-operators combine their savoir-faire to produce red, rosé and white wines as well as Crémants de Bordeaux sparkling wines using state-of-the-art wine-making equipment. From vineyard to bottle, quality, traceability and commitment to environmental protection are priorities.
