It is located in in the village of Saint Germain du Puch in the Entre deux Mers wine region, in the centre of the Bordelais wine country, a short drive from Bordeaux city. The vineyards include traditional Bordeaux grape varieties: merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc and gris, sémillon and muscadelle. The vines are an average of 20 years old. The winery is in the centre of the village and is equipped with modern temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, as well as traditional concrete vats. They sometimes use micro-oxidation as well as other modern vinification techniques. Some of the red wines are aged in oak barrels (barriques). They make both red wine, white wine and rosé with the appellations Bordeaux, Bordeaux Supérieur and Entre-deux-Mers.
