Château du Cèdre, a small family owned and run estate, is World famous for its Malbec wines. Now in the hands of the second generation - Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe.
The vineyard is certified organic. Starting in the early 1990s, they banned all herbicides from the vineyards and stopped using chemical spraying agents in 2002.
