Its beautiful architecture, its bodies of water and the quality of its annex buildings all add up to make an exceptional site in natural surroundings, situated only eleven kilometers from Bordeaux. Olivier is a very old seigniory, dating back to the Middle Ages. It is said that the Black Prince enjoyed coming here to hunt, as the surrounding forests were so well-stocked in game. Since the 19th century, the estate has belonged to an old Bordeaux family in the shape of the Bethmanns.Château Olivier wines received official classification in 1953, for both red and white varieties.
