Chateau Romefort is the 2nd estate of Chateau Lamothe Bergeron, the famous Haut Medoc estate located in the commune of Cussac, just south of St-Julien. Lamothe Bergeron has an interesting history, with its château dating back to 1868. Lamothe indicates a property on a `motte` (a plot of high land), while Bergeron was the name of an owner in the 19th century. The Haut-Medoc, is a mix of mostly gravel, with some lesser amounts of chalk, and clay soils. Chateau Romefort covers an area of 28 hectares of vines averaging 20 years old. Wine has been made in this area since Roman times. The name of the Château refers to the location of a Roman Fort on this strategic point on the heights above the Dordogne river.
