A brief history
Château Suau today is a beautiful 203-acre property, located south of the village of Capian, 35 km from Bordeaux. The 66 hectares of vineyards, in one piece, surround farm buildings. The vineyard produces red wines in the appellations Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux and Côtes de Bordeaux, dry white Bordeaux and rosé, along with a sweet Cadillac.
From a geographical point of view, it is located on the highest point of the appellation Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux, an altitude of 100 meters. The soil is mainly composed of clay and gravel. The different varieties are adapted to the predominant soil type (clay, rocky, stony). The south-south-east at the top of hills exhibition provides both a perfect sunshine for the vineyards and a natural drainage of the soil. The vineyard is surrounded by forests and hedges, to help maintain a balance between biodiversity, cultivated and wild areas.
In 2008, Château Suau began its conversion to organic farming. Since the 2014 vintage, all products are certified Ecocert and wines are produced under the direction of Michel Rolland. Since 2016, Château Suau produces sulfur free wines and vegan wines since 2018.
