About the winery

Château Couhins is located at Villenave d’Ornon very near to Bordeaux. It has been ranked in 1959 and was for a long time the ownership of a wine merchant family. Today the estate is owned by the INRA “Institut National de Recherche Agronomique” which has saved it from disappearing in 1968.

Bien mais Château mal indiqué
By Antoine for A la Découverte d'un Cru Classé de Graves 3 months ago 3.7
Bon accueil et bonne dégustation mais le château est très mal indiqué car voisin d'un autre Château Couhins et on a eu beaucoup de mal à trouver.
Private Tour

Booked tour and degustation just one hour before and got private tour by Head of Sales. Wonderful experience, explained everything in great detail, answered all questions with pride and knowhow. Had four wines for tasting, very nice.
Excellente visite
By Thomas for A la Découverte d'un Cru Classé de Graves 5 months ago 5
Visite très intéressante et explications claires et détaillées ! Les vins étaient également très bons!
Really good to learn about the role of INRA in the wine business
By Harsha for Discovery of a Grand Cru Classé from Graves 6 months ago 4.7
We had a really good visit to Chateau Couhins and learned a lot about all the research being done in viticulture and wine making. This was not a branded hard sell like many other wineries but a more informed approach to precision viticulture such as the use of satellite imagery and new bug resistant root stocks. We tasted only 2 wines (were supposed to taste four) , maybe because of lack of time. Both wines were excellent. White was a Sauvignon Blanc wit a little Gris and the second was mostly Merlot. Was really interesting to learn about the soil types in this part of Pessac Leognan and how this Ag College is working on the frontiers of environmentally sound practices.
