Our history

Nestled against the “Côte de Franc”, the slope from which it gets its name, the Château Franc Mayne vineyard is made up of a single block of vines, deeply rooted in its sloping terroir and on the prestigious limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, 1 kilometre from the village.The estate offers unique wine tourism attractions with tours all year round, as well as a guest house nestling among the vines.

Tours include a walk through the vineyard and a visit to the vat room and the magical first year barrel cellar. Prior to tasting the wine, visitors discover the two hectares (5 acres) of underground quarries in which the wines are aged in the second year. Typical of the region, these galleries are among the largest open to the public in the appellation and feature a son et lumière show created by the scenographer Eric Le Collen.

Fully renovated in 2019, the pleasant 18th century château includes Le Relais Franc Mayne, offering five elegant bedrooms, one of which is a cabin perched in one of the cedar trees. Depending on the time and the season, the terrace and billiard room can be enjoyed, as well as the swimming pool for a refreshing dip.

Nestled in the privacy of its seven hectares of vines, Château Franc Mayne is an inspiration. Whether passing through or staying there, the view over the vineyard is not to be missed.

Visite Franc Mayne

Our wine tasting and tour at Chateau Franc Mayne was a fantastic experience. Morgan, our host and sommelier, was informative and helpful, enhancing our understanding of the wines and the chateau\'s history. The wines were delightful, with each one offering a unique and memorable flavor. The tour of the grounds added to the experience, providing a picturesque setting. We left with a deep appreciation for the winery\'s craftsmanship and a few bottles to enjoy later. Highly recommended for wine enthusiasts and novelists alike!

I visited with my parents during their first time in France and we absolutely loved the experience. Laëtitia was extremely hospitable, welcome us early, showing us around with enthusiasm and humor, and was very knowledgeable about the process, wine industry as well as answers to all of our questions. We were thrilled to come here, and I will plan on being back soon!

Our tour and tasting was a wonderful experience. We have toured lots of caves and this by far was the best cave & tour. The Roman road by the old post office was the an extraordinary piece of history and our favorite thing from our week in the Saint Emilion area.

This tour was a great experience! The wines were delicious and the tour by knowledgeable CeCe was first-rate, and the tour of the quarry added a very special (unique?) angle. We are so glad that we chose to make Franc Mayne the site of the one wine tasting we were able to do in St. Emilion. (And we will think fondly of this visit in future years when we open the wine we shipped home! :) Glenn Smith, Diane Seaberg, and Crew
