Château Falfas is owned by Véronique Cochran, who is building on the traditions of the past with a very simple philosophy: the best wines are not “made” but rather “grown." She remains passionate about practicing biodynamic principles to extract the very essence of the terroir, producing authentic, rich and generous wines. With 20 hectares of vineyards planted on rolling hillsides of Bayon in the Côtes de Bourg, Veronique farms 20 hectares of Merlot, Cabernet, Cabernet Franc and Malbec on the pedigreed calcaire à astéries, clay and silica soil over a deep limestone bedrock of fossilized oysters—the classic combination for growing great wines in Bordeaux. Château Falfas has a winemaking heritage that dates back to the 14th century, and was in fact one of the very first in Bordeaux to practise organic and biodynamic methods.
