About Château Pineraie :
"Cahors has been an established winemaking area for centuries and a Latin manuscript from 1456 shows that the Burc family were already landowners around Cahors at that time. 5th generation vigneron Jean-Luc Burc now shares the running of this 50-hectare estate near Puy-L'Évèque with his daughters, Anne and Emmanuelle. They produce individual and characterful wines from their various vineyard parcels which encompass all of the classic terroirs of the region, both on the renowned terraces of the Lot and upon the limestone plateau above. The estate's old vines are carefully managed according to the principles of lutte raisonnée."
