The Chateau Sipian, Médoc Cru Bourgeois since 1932, is located on a gravel crest along the left bank of the Gironde.

Owner Frederic Meheaye grew up nearby in Valeyrac, sharing his youth between the Port of Goulee and rows of vines where his parents were working. Today, the Chateau now reaches to over 34 hectares.
