The Château Ferran is located in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan Appellation, just south of the town of Bordeaux. The property was owned by Montesquieu in the 18th century, but since 1999 it's Philippe and Ghislaine Lacoste who manage the property, descendants of the 4th generation to Joseph Beraud-Sudreau who bought the property in 1880. Significant investments, restructuring and renovation of the wine cellar has been made recently which has quickly been rewarded with medals and good grades from wine journalists. The wine is produced by the oenologist Denis Dubourdieu and Christophe Ollivier.
