The winery : Vignobles Despagne
About the winery
After hitchhiking for a year in South America and graduating from the Bordeaux university of oenology, Jean-Louis Despagne took charge of Chateau Tour de Mirambeau in 1969, which stretched over 20 hectares at the time. With his wife Odile, they extended the property, improved the quality of the wines and developed distribution channels throughout the world. In 2003, Jean-Louis left the business in the hands of his children.
