About the winery
Our estate has been family owned since its beginnings in 1854 when it was bought by Louis Carteyron and his soon Jacques. For many years, the production was divided between fruit and wine.
Hubert Carteyron began direct sales of Chateau Penin in bottle with the 1964 vintage. His son Patrick, representing the fifth generation, took over the estate in 1982 after working as an oenologist for several years. The fruit production side of the farm then disappeared, making way for the vines which were planted with the clear aim of producing quality grapes for wine. As the new vineyards developed, new cellars were built.
Today, we produce wine from 40 hectares of vines, with an annual production of 270,000 bottles. We sell all our wines directly to customers in France (50%) and in the rest of the world (Europe, Asia, America). (Source: www.chateaupenin.com)
