Chateau Leoville Poyferre
In 1804, Henri Cuvelier founded a wine trading company in his hometown of Haubourdin in the north of France. The family business developed rapidly, driven by the revival of interest in Bordeaux wines in general and the Médoc Classified Growths in particular. The family expanded their operations during the 19th century with a dense commercial network stretching from Normandy to Flanders. Thanks to its distinguished past, and through the efforts and investments of the last three decades, Château Léoville Poyferré has regained its level of excellence: – The 80-hectare vineyard has undergone an ambitious program of planting and restructuration (over 20 years). – The modern winemaking facilities illustrate the perfect balance between modernity and tradition, featuring the latest technological advances, while the barrel cellars respect the Médocain traditions. – Our dynamic winemaking team is always in search of improvement. – Our hospitality and wine tours team is ready to welcome visitors from around the world.

For over a century we have been the inheritors of a unique terroir: a heritage that is both a privilege and a responsibility. This responsibility is at the very heart of our environmental consciousness, in the ever changing landscape of the world. Thanks to our teams’ daily dedication we are able to reconcile these two ambitions, excellence and accessibility so that each tasting is memorable. This is why we also take great pride in warmly welcoming our guests at the property throughout the year, a warmth of heart and character which is famed in the North of France and true to our roots.
