Winery Info/ Brand
Chateau Teyssier has a long history in the Bordeaux region with wine production since the 1700s. During the nineteenth century, Teyssier was the largest wine producer in their sector of the Right Bank. In 1994, Jonathan Maltus, bought Chateau Teyssier after selling his engineering company and has since extended the range of wines produced under Teyssier to 10. Jonathan soon gained reputation for being able to produce a range of wines that stood out just as successfully for being unique as for being top quality. Now leading dynamic teams in both Bordeaux and Napa Valley, he's ambitious than ever and a driving force for change. Best of all, he loves what he does - winemaking passion is the root of his success and the expertise of him and his team is proudly displayed in every bottle.
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).
