Though only 2.34 hectares in size, the Pomerol-based vineyard of Chateau Grande Antilope produces an astonishing 10,000 bottles annually. Pomerol is situated in the eastern part of Bordeaux close to the prestigious vineyard of Chateau Saint-Emilion. Although it is the smallest producing area in Bordeaux, this property is famous for producing top-quality wines whose excellent quality and limited production make them highly prized amongst expert oenophiles worldwide. The area’s grape growing and winemaking history dates back to the first century BC when Romans occupied local lands and introduced grape growing techniques. The predecessor Chateau Grande Antilope was one of the 30 chateaux that made Pomerol famous. The area’s Lespine family have been brewing wines by traditional methods here since the 18th century for five generations. Wines fermented and bottled locally were only available to family members and their neighbours.
