At the heart of an exceptional terroir

"The soul of Gerbaÿ is a tasty blend of traditions, know-how & modernity"


Château Petit-Gerbaÿ is located on an exceptional site with enchanting hilly landscapes, dominating the plots of vines.


Neighbor of the Golf du Grand Saint-Émilionnais, in the heart of the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, 20 minutes from Libourne, it is also halfway between the seaside resorts of the Atlantic Coast and the tourist sites of the Vallée de la Dordogne.

located in the heart of the Appellation Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux, in the communes of Gardegan-et-Tourtirac and Saint-Philippe-d'Aiguilhe and thus benefits from a rich terroir in the extension of the Côteaux de Saint-Emilion.


Thus, our Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec grape varieties thrive fully on a soil composed of clay and limestone. The average age of the vines is 30 years.


6 hectares adjoin the domain and 3 hectares are located on the plateaux of Saint-Philippe-d'Aiguilhe, the second highest point in the Gironde department.

  • Merlot: 80%

  • Cabernet Franc: 12%

  • Cabernet Sauvignon: 5%

  • Malbec: 2%

If we have always favored traditional cultivation and sustainable agriculture, this year we are embarking on a process of switching to organic farming.


Thus, the treatments are only based on sulfur and Bordeaux mixture to prevent the onset of vine diseases such as powdery mildew and mildew.


The vines are planted almost in squares: 1.30m spacing between the feet and 1.50m between the rows which remain grassed one row out the two. Tillage is done on the surface only under the row by mechanical scratches.

Manual double Guyot pruning and leaf stripping ensure better spread of the harvest and excellent ventilation for lower yield but maximum quality.

The vinification in stainless steel or cement vats is done by integrating modern methods, such as thermoregulation in order to control fermentations, while the 18-month aging takes place in cement vats or barrels.


Bottling is done exclusively at the Château
