A brief history
Clos Cantenac is a small but seductive 6 hectares property made up of four main parcels of vines carefully planted on an exceptional “terroir” of deep gravels, sand and clay over broken limestone situated close to the prehistoric “Megalith ?de Pierrefitte.”
When we purchased this enchanting St Emilion Grand Cru Property in late 2006, the initial challenge was to take control of the day-to-day management of the vines, then to improve the vineyard architecture, and finally to renovate the ancient 200 year old winery in preparation for our first harvest in late September 2007.
In 2017 Charlotte Krajewski joined the team as Technical Director and Chief Wine Maker after having spent the previous ten years working overseas in six countries and on four continents.
Charlotte brings with her much accumulated knowledge and experience from around the world, yet we still continue to work in a very traditional way and proudly respect both the history and culture of the region in order to produce our fine wines.
