About the winery
Gabriel Meffre, a renowned nurseryman from the Vaucluse, bought the estate in 1961. A few years later, he adds several plots acquired from Chateau Lagrange, a 3ème Grand Cru Classé from Saint-Julien, which increased the area of the vineyard from five to forty three hectares.
Helped by his young sons Ludovic and Julien, Jean-Paul Meffre now looks after the estate. They are motivated by a major ambition: to achieve the estate's full potential. Surrounded by some of finest great growths in the Médoc, Château Du Glana has made tremendous strides in quality since 1999.
Much thought has gone into making improvements over the past several years and the vineyard has been entirely renovated. Château Du Glana produces modern elegant wines of character reflecting the estate's superb terroir.
The estate's completely restored buildings (vat room, grape reception area, ageing cellar, offices, and reception room), the immense care taken in the vineyard, and precious winemaking advice from Professor Denis Dubourdieu provide a sound equilibrium between modern methods and respect for tradition. Château Du Glana is thus a well-balanced, velvety, and complex wine enjoyable young, but also with excellent ageing potential (over ten years). (Source: www.chateau-du-glana.com)
