Winery Info/ Brand



Château Laforge was purchased in 1998 by Jonnathan Maltus from the daughter of the local blacksmith – hence the name. The blacksmith used to work for the properties of Saint-Emilion and to be paid in land instead of money. Eventually, all the property was acquired by Jonathan Maltus. Chateau Laforge, with a size of 5.8 hectare vineyard, is probably the highest percentage of Merlot found in any of the properties. Wines of Chateau Laforge are made at their well-known and much larger property Chateau Teyssier, as there is no actual cellars or chateau exists for Chateau Laforge. 

Region Info/ Origin



Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
