Chateau Donis was taken over in 2005 by Vincent Mercier, a young 48 year old wine grower. Native from Correze, he moved to study viticulture and finally stayed in Bordeaux. The first years, he sold his wine through the cooperative cellar. But in 2013 he decided to sell on its own, under a chateau label.
With experience from his first job as a cellar employee on a property under conversion to organic farming, he was certain that this method had a vital interest in the quality of the wine. When he took over the property, he automatically did what was necessary to obtain organic certifications. 'Donis' is the locality name. Conducted in Organic Farming. 2 plots (13 ha and 5 ha).
