About this wine producer: Château Du Glana was constructed in 1870. At this time, a small (5 hectares) vineyard of gravelly soil was consolidated thanks to the purchase of several plots of land from neighboring Château Saint-Pierre. Gabriel Meffre bought Château Du Glana in 1961. He increased the vineyard to 59 hectares in the following years by acquiring several plots belonging to the "third growth" Château Lagrange, among others. The estate is currently managed by his son, Jean-Paul, and grandsons, Ludovic and Julien. Much of the modernization of the estate took place with the help of the late Denis Dubourdieu. The vines are densely planted on Garronaise gravel and average 25 years of age. Farming is "lutte raisonée" (sustainable) with the vineyards worked by hand.
