The Chateau de Castelneau is a old family property in the heart of Bordeaux (Gironde, France), in the Entre-deux-Mers between the rivers Dordogne and Garonne. It belongs to the family of Vicomte Loïc de Roquefeuil. The chateau itself is a fortified edifice that dates back to the 14th century. It has two impressive corner towers. The Roquefeuil family consists of the viscount Loic, his wife Diane de Roquefeuil, and their children Gasppard, Léonore, Emilion, and Elvire.
The Castelneau estate extends over some 100 hectares of which 30 ha are vineyards, 23 ha of red wine grape vines and 7 ha of white grapes. The red varieties that are used are merlot, cabernet franc, and cabernet sauvignon. The merlot is the most planted grape variety (reflecting the whole of the Bordeaux wine producing region). the white grapes are sauvignon blanc, semillon and muscadelle. They have recently planted the unusual grape variety noir de pressac.
Chateau de Castelneau makes five different wines: a rosé, darkly coloured in the tradition of Bordeaux 'clairet', two whites and two reds.
