Château Haut Brion is an estate located in the Pessac-Leognan area of the Graves in Bordeaux, France. It is one of four (later five) chateaux to be classified Premier Cru Classé, First Growth, in the (now outdated) classification of 1885. The property belongs to Les Domaines Clarence Dillon since 1935. The winery is located in the suburbs of the city of Bordeaux and is today entirely surrounded by suburban housing.

The vineyards of Chateau Haut Brion cover just under 50 hectares. They are planted with classic Bordeaux grape varieties: merlot, cabernet sauvignon (each accounting for between 40% and 45% of the total), cabernet franc, and petit verdot. There are also some white vines split almost 50/50 between sauvignon blanc and semillon.

The winery is of course equipped with all modern winemaking and vinification technology. Stainless steel tanks are used for fermentation. After fermentation the wines are aged in wood for around 18 months in the barrel cellar before being bottled and sold to claret investors on the international market.
