    What about Château Haut Brion, The Pontac’s Head and Samuel Pepys?

  2. CHATEAU LA NERTHE (Chateauneuf-du-Pape): first written record 1560, likely to have been established over a century earlier…

    Growing grapes goes back to 8000 BC and the first people who made wine were Armenians in Areni-1 Cave Complex 6100 BC.
