Vignobles Landié, a family-owned Estate for over 30 years, is an independent grower who started his career as a simple winegrower selling in bulk. In the late 90s, Mr. Landié built a modern stainless-steel winery with cold storage facilities and started selling bottled wine. A big challenge that he successfully met by producing excellent value driven Bordeaux.
