, located in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan AOC in the region of Bordeaux, once belonged to Montesquieu, an 18th-century philosopher and wine grower. Château Ferran’s terroir
has always produced red and white wines (originally known as "Premiers graves Martillac"). Since 1880, the property has been owned by an old Bordeaux family. Château Ferran’s estate has been run by the descendants of Joseph Beraud-Sudreau, Philippe and Ghislaine Lacoste, since 1999.
The extensive restructuring work of the Château Ferran vineyards and the renovation of its cellars, undertaken in recent years, were quickly recompensed by numerous medals and good ratings from French, English and U.S. wine writers, particularly at the Pessac-Léognan AOC Primeurs (Futures) tastings. Through their work in the vineyards (de-budding, leaf removal and thinning, hand picking by parcel), and their sorting work carried out in the vineyards or in the vat room, they are able to select and blend the best lots for the Château Ferran wine, at the time of ageing, and to produce a softer second wine under the Château de Belloc label.
