The story begins in 1966 when Henri & Françoise Lévêque decided to create what will become later the Chateau de Chantegrive!

They were really convinced of the potential of the Graves “terroir”, this is the reason why they decided to sell their superb stamp collection to acquire their first two hectares.

What happened next is a success story, the result of a relentless work always oriented toward the future and the new technologies combined with the unconditional need to be present among the vines with their employees. “It was a childhood dream, we made it come true”

Françoise & Henri together formed a very dynamic duo, a solid visionary team, and above all: a couple of passionate wine lovers.
