Welcome to Clos Cantenac

Clos Cantenac is a small but seductive 6 hectares property made up of four main parcels of vines carefully planted on an exceptional “terroir” of deep gravels, sand and clay over broken limestone situated close to the prehistoric “Megalith de Pierrefitte”.

This enchanting, Saint Emilion Grand Cru estate was purchased by Martin Krajewski along with his great friend and wine enthusiast Marcus Le Grice from New Zealand in early 2007 and continues to be developed.

The first challenge was of course to take control of the day-to-day management of the vines, then to improve the vineyard architecture, and finally to renovate the ancient 200 year old winery in preparation for our first harvest in late September 2007.

Some ten years later, we still continue to work in the same traditional way and to proudly respect both the history and culture of the region in order to produce our fine wines.
