Chateau Jouvente is a family estate of 8.7 hectares, nestled in the heart of the Graves. We practice a responsible agriculture with the follow-up of a program in bio-control and the obtaining of the High Environmental Value certification (HVE-3). Each harvest is hand-picked. Fruity and complex, with character and freshness, our wines are typical of the Graves appellation and are regularly awarded (Concours général de l'Agriculture, Trophée des Crus de Graves, Concours des Vignerons Indépendants, etc.).
Château Jouvente is also a place of oenotouristic, cultural and artistic meetings. Throughout the year, you can visit Château Jouvente and taste our wines, both our whites and our reds on recent and mature vintages, as well as the Sauternes of Château Roumieu. Finally, we offer a cultural and artistic program related to our profession of winegrower, sometimes original and unpublished. Chateau Jouvente has been nominated, in 2021, in the top 100 of the Trophées de l'Œnotourisme, organized by Terre de Vins.  
A domain not to be missed for the pleasure of the eyes and the taste buds!
Please contact us to know our cultural and artistic program.

"Œnovisa is a great initiative of solidarity, which aims to promote our territory, our know-how and our wine-tourism reception. On one hand, it allows us to work together on a common project, to enrich each other and to create strong and trustworthy links between producters. On the other hand, we all want to anchor the wine traveler on our bank of the Garonne, while offering complementary and original activities from one estate to another. Œnovisa is a passport that will allow everyone to escape!"
