La Serre

Saint émilion grand cru

Château La Serre is very close to the medieval village of Saint-Emilion, just 200 metres from the village walls and is situated between three Premiers Crus Classés. The estate is thought to have acquired its name (La Serre meaning “greenhouse”) because of its exceptional full south-facing exposure.

History

1956

In 1956 Bernard d’Arfeuille purchased La Serre, a late 17th century château. The 7 hectare-vineyard, situated on the highest part of Saint-Emilion at the top of the limestone plateau, produces wines of great finesse.

THE SEVENTIES

By the end of the 1970s, Luc d’Arfeuille had succeeded in placing the wines made at his vineyard among the leading Saint-Emilion Grands Crus Classés. He then set in motion a long process of renovation of the vineyard and wine production facilities.

2013

In 2013, Arnaud d’Arfeuille, Luc d’Arfeuille’s nephew, joined the daily management team at the estate, thus continuing the family tradition. Meanwhile, an attractive tasting room with a view over the Saint-Emilion vineyard was added to the estate.

2018

2018 saw new impetus being injected into the estate with the building of a new vat room designed to enable plot by plot vinifications of the La Serre vineyard.
