The Barthe brothers call themselves ‘the happy wine growers’ – this delicious wine echoes their love for their vineyards.
Chateau Darzac has been in the Barthe family for 220 years, and together with the land and buildings, a deep natural passion for wine growing has been passed from generation to generation.
