Winery Chateau Montrose, unlike most of the Medoc vineyards - enough young company. Even at the end of the XVIII century, these lands were nothing more than a swamp overgrown with heather. In 1778 the land acquired Etienne Theodore Dumoulin, later the estate took up his son, who cleared the land from the plant and found the gravel soil, it is suitable for growing grapes. The first crops were obtained in 1815, in 1820 the site was expanded, and the construction of a small Chateau. After that, the hosts were replaced many times, as many times reformed the vineyards and buy new equipment until the works have not given their fruit in the form of wonderful wines. The heyday of the economy came in 2006, when the estate acquired Martin and Oliver Bowie. Today, the castle owned 65 hectares of land with a beautiful exposition, facing the Gironde, in the south-eastern part of the commune of Saint-Estephe.
