Our heritage

Our pure winegrowing tradition has been passed down four generations.

First generation: Daniel Massé

The Domaine de Terrefort-Bibonne was created in 1890 by Daniel Massé.

A winemaker at heart, Daniel planted this magnificent property with a vineyard called Terrefort in Saint-Loubès; to tie the estate to the family heritage, he added the maiden name of his grandmother, hence the name of Domaine de Terrefort-Bibonne.

Second generation: Pierre Massé

Daniel’s son, Pierre, acquired the Château Queyssard located in the town of Pompignac in 1953.

A passionate fruit grower, Pierre concentrated Queyssard's activity on fruit trees (apple, plum and pear).
Pierre therefore cultivated vines at Terrefort and fruit at Queyssard.

Third generation: Francis Massé

A few years later, Francis, Pierre's son, converted Château Queyssard into a vineyard with modernized winemaking process and storage cellars.

It was towards the end of the 90s that Francis, eager to enlarge the Domaine de Terrefort-Bibonne, acquired the vines of Château de la Tour Gueyraud in Sainte-Eulalie.

Although in poor condition, Francis embarked renovated this magnificent 19th century winery where the château's wines were made at that time.

Fourth generation: Nicolas Massé

In 2012, with the arrival of Nicolas, Vignobles Massé expanded their range by acquiring Château Lagrave in Saint-Emilion.

The property is located halfway between the village of Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol vineyard.

Vignobles Massé comprise of three units: Château Queyssard, also head office, located in Pompignac, Domaine de Terrefort-Bibonne in Sainte-Eulalie and Château Lagrave in Saint-Emilion.

Our philosophy is clear, reveal the terroirs from each of our Châteaux, produce and offer our customers authentic wines while respecting the environment. 

Today, I work with my parents to make the family vineyards as successful as possible.
