The name of this estate comes from its founder, Gabriel Ferrière, royal broker in Bordeaux in the 18th century. In 1855, Château Ferrière was classified 3rd Grand Cru Classé. In 1988, the Villars family bought the vines and the château and took over the operation of the vineyard and the winemaking. With twelve hectares of vines, located mainly in the town of Margaux and its terroir made up of deep Garonne gravel and deposited on limestone marls, Château Ferrière has one of the smallest Grands Crus Classés vineyards in 1855. The size of its vineyard, combined with the beauty of its terroir, makes Château Ferrière wine a rare and prized product.
Claire Villars Lurton is the driving force behind this renewal. Year after year, she works with the greatest finesse, to reveal in her wine the exceptional terroir possessed by Château Ferrière and to restore the vineyard to its original splendor, so that it regains the integrity of its rank.
