Château Tassin is located within the municipal district of Rions (from the Latin Riucium or “built on rock”), one of the region’s oldest medieval towns. Fortified around the 12th century, Rions has managed to preserve its old ramparts, as well as its narrow winding streets bordered by old picturesque buildings. The château's vineyard stretches across both the slopes overlooking the town and the plains bordering the Garonne River. The château was originally located on “Tassin’s Isle” , but the extraction of gravel and sand from the riverbed (since forbidden) eventually undermined its foundations.
Terroir: Clayey-limestone slopes
Grape varieties: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 60% Merlot

Controlled grassing-down of the vine rows or mechanical working of the soil, to improve the soils’ vitality and biodiversity.

Sustainable farming methods are applied to the entire vineyard, which enjoys Haute Valeur Environnementale (“High Environmental Value”) certification.
