Winegrowing in Côtes de Bourg dates to at least the 2nd century CE when Romans planted vitis biturica vines, ancestors of the Cabernet Sauvignon we know today. Château Falfas is part of that history and is one of the most renowned properties in the Côtes de Bordeaux. Because of its dedication to quality and its pioneering implementation of biodynamics in 1988, Chateau Falfas has long been regarded as a singular property in the region of Bourg. The current winemaker and proprietor, Véronique Cochran, has a strong link to biodynamics as the daughter of Francois Bouchet, a central figure and teacher of biodynamic grape-growing in France. With a 400-year winemaking history and a modern adaptation to ecological practices, Château Falfas offers an excellent alternative to the more stolid and expensive Grand Crus Classés from nearby Pomerol, St. Emilion, or Medoc.
