The story of Baron de Lestac dates back to 1986, the result of the passion of a Bordeaux wine trader who was deeply attached to his region.
His ambition ? His ambition was to make Bordeaux more accessible by creating a wine that would be the perfect illustration of this prestigious yet sometimes intimidating wine region. He kept his promise and today, Baron de Lestac is one of the leading Bordeaux brands, with our name representing authenticity and quality, vintage after vintage, for almost forty years. Parcel selection, grower partnerships, vinification, ageing and blending are just some of the commitments and skills that make Baron de Lestac an ambassador for the wines of Bordeaux.
Bordeaux is an emblematic French wine region. Its wines are known worldwide, thanks to their exceptional terroirs, the talent of the growers who make them, and to the hard work of dedicated wine traders who have laboured for many years to make these wines known to as many wine lovers as possible. Today, Baron de Lestac continues this tradition with respect for Bordeaux traditions, for people and for nature via the Terra Vitis certification.
From tending the vines to the final product, winemaking involves many different crafts, as evidenced by the skills of vineyard workers, producers, oenologists, cellar masters and coopers. As a Bordeaux wine ambassador, Baron de Lestac has built a network of know-how, both in-house and with our long-term grower-partners whose talent, passion and precision are expressed through our wines.
Bordeaux wines stand out because they are made in a unique way characterised by skilful blending and traditional ageing in oak barrels. This demanding, highly skilled approach is the very soul of Bordeaux: Baron de Lestac continues to uphold this tradition, creating wines that are timeless.
Bottles of Baron de Lestac have been certified Terra Vitis since the 2019 vintage. The Bag-in-box format will be certified Terra Vitis from summer 2022.
