ABOUT THE CHÂTEAU


The von Neipperg family has made wine in Germany since the 13th century, and viticulture has never stopped being a central part of their life. The custodian of some 800 years of winegrowing tradition, the talented Stephan von Neipperg manages the Bordeaux estates acquired by his family in 1971. Ably assisted by a team of professionals, he has brought the wines from these châteaux to the pinnacle of quality.  Residing in Saint-Emilion since 1983, Stephan von Neipperg and his wife, Sigweis, have devoted themselves tirelessly to perpetuating the family tradition at their various estates. The next generation is committed to this same goal... and shares a profound respect for the terroir.
