What is the history of the Château Haut Mazières ?
In the early twentieth century, Mr. Martin EMILE, nurseryman, decide to come back from Brazil were he used to cultivate coffee to plant 1Ha of vine. My father, Gilbert VAZELLE, who was Emile’s son-in-law, possessed 3Ha that he started to bring to the Rauzan Winery in 1944. I installed myself in 1971.
At this time I had 9Ha of vines when in 1990, I bought the 14Ha of vine of the Château Haut Mazières.
