Chateau de la Mallevieille

Cultivated by Philippe and Hélène Biau, Chateau de la Mallevielle and their 30 hectares of vines can be found in the hills on the right bank of the Dordogne River. Near the village of Monfaucon, the couple have recently been joined by Thierry & Nadia, who have added an extra 7 hectares to the property.
