History of
Château Caroline

The vineyard origin dates back to the 17th century, its pretty and relatively young name was born from the separation of the old domain of David into two vineyards when the appellations Listrac were created in 1957 and Moulis in 1936.

In 1870 Charles de Saint Guirons had the magnificent chateau built on the plans of the architect Minvielle in the style characteristic of the Napoleon III era. Since that time, the castle has always been inhabited.


Marcel CHANFREAU in 1974

At the beginning of 1963, Marcel Chanfreau and his son Léo, winemakers in North Africa, fell in love with the beautiful ensemble of Château Caroline and Château Lestage, which they immediately acquired.
