A Tale of Two Continents: Bordeaux Château Malartic-Lagraviére

The Famed Bordeaux Château Malartic-Lagravière

A Bordeaux Château encouraging you to visit! Looking for one of the most diverse Bordeaux tastings?  You’ll find it at Château Malartic-Lagravière. 

 Truly one of the most diverse tastings in Bordeaux I’ve had to date.  Not only was I sipping one of the top Bordeaux Château, but I was also sipping wines made by a family that crosses into South America as well.  Specifically Argentina. It is a rare experience to taste two continents in one maker’s location, particularly in Bordeaux. The owners of this Bordeaux Château are the Bonnie Family.

Château Malartic-LaGravière has a rich history in winemaking. Beginning with its birth sometime in the late 18th century.  A storied history, and a famed namesake. Malartic is named for the Count Hippolyte de Maurès de Malartic. He was Admiral who served under the Kings of France. As the property changed hands, each owner improved the wine and the winery.

When the Bonnie family first entered the wine industry with Château Malartic-Lagravière. No one could guess that they would begin another adventure in Mendoza, Argentina. By bringing their Bordeaux know-how to another continent they applied their experience to their latest creation Diamandes in Uco Valley.The respect they have for wine growing served their Mendoza wine venture well now blending a beautiful Malbec with the traditions of Bordeaux’s Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Bonnie family acquired the property in 1996 and have ensured they are preserving brand integrity while constantly working to improve both the vineyards and the wine. Their state of the art facility at their Bordeaux Château is a study in technical progress.
