STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Château Darzac has been in the Barthe family for 220 years, and a deep natural passion for wine growing has been passed from generation to generation. The father of the actual owners, Claude, is at the age of 75 and still active as winemaking consultant. In 1996 his sons Stéphane and Alain took over the running of the property and has been hugely successful and happy in carrying on the family tradition.
