The vineyard covers a stunning piece of land of 26 hectares and is provided with Günzian gravel and green and blue clay. These type of soils provide for the grape’s best nutrition and irrigation of water, and is one of the main features of the Château Gazin vineyard. Over 80 percent of the vineyard is planted with Merlot vines, and a smaller amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. After the grapes have reached the right maturity the grapes are harvested manually, after which the wine is fermented in concrete vats and matured in new French oak casks for approximately 18 months.
