The first vines appeared on the gravel hillsides
of Haut-Brion in the first century AD. In 1521,
Château Haut-Brion became the first Bordeaux vineyard
to be named after its terroir, instead of the owner or the parish,
making the estate the first luxury wine brand in the world.
This led Haut-Brion to earn the rare distinction of
Premier Grand Cru Classé (Classified First Growth)
in the 1855 classification, the only cru outside
the Médoc to receive this prestigious title.
The success of Château Haut-Brion’s wines lies in its respect for tradition, its values, its unique expertise acquired over the centuries, and its innovative, modern vision. Through the wines, the estate aims to reveal the quintessence of our exceptional terroirs.
The ultimate celebration of Gastronomy and Wine!
