Château de Santenay is one of Burgundy’s largest wine domaines. Its prestigious heritage, which comprises a remarkable Château with a glazed tile roof and 90 hectares of vineyards, is the product of a time-old legacy that is closely tied to the history of the Burgundy wine region.
With white and red wines produced in 14 appellations including Bourgogne, Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Mercurey, Aloxe Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Santenay, Saint-Aubin and Clos de Vougeot, and from a number of different ‘climats’, Château Santenay includes no less than 25 wines in its range including 3 Monopolies, 10 Premier Crus and one Grand Cru.
For the last 20 years, the domaine has been taking an environmentally-friendly approach to growing, proving itself to be a true pioneer in this respect. It has been TERRA VITIS certified since 2004 and was certified by the Ministry of Agriculture in 2009 for its use of sustainable growing methods. In 2015, it was one of the first wine domaines to receive ‘High Environmental Value’ (HEV 3) certification respecting a new set of specifications issued by the French Ministry of Agriculture.
