Sauternes and Barsac produces sweet wines, known for their qualities throughout the world.
Château Jany has owned and operated the Turtaut family in Jany Castle for three generations. Already rooted since the 1800s in the cultivation of local vines, with working parents at the myrat and Vedrines castles, while the family of his wife, Odette Laprie, was a winery worker at Château Yquem and stage manager at Château Coutet, André Turtaut, the maker of the farm started his vine business as an employee also in this first great vintage.
Back from the war after 5 years of captivity, he decided to start his own business with 50 vines and a horse. From the 1960s to 1972 he acquired 5 hectares; its son, Bertrand, took over until 2002, the area of the vineyard was 14 hectares. Today, with Nicolas, the estate is 20 hectares with 2 hectares of red graves.
This family farm best represents its name because of its geographical location and the know-how that is passed down from generation to generation. Reasoned culture, traditional winemaking and a warm welcome are the strength of this area.
