Château Haut Jonset is owned by winemaker Patrick Gresta and his family. It lies in the heart of the undulating hills of the Entre-DeuxMers region of southwestern France. Entre-DeauxMers means “between two seas,” but in this case, it refers to two tidal rivers, the Garonne and the Dordogne. The 16-hectare estate is about 25 miles east of Bordeaux.
The south-facing terroir is composed of clay-limestone soils. The vines are 25 years old. The mechanical harvesting takes place in September. Fruit is sorted first in the vineyard with a second sorting at the winery. Aging is in stainless steel, temperature-controlled vats.
