Built in the 17th century, Château Bellevue has been owned by the Ponton d'Amecourt family since 1973. Interestingly, in 1861, their ancestor Gustave invented the helicopter. Château Bellevue is located on 84 hectares (208 acres) of vineyard and produces a range of Bordeaux whites and reds. The château is located on a large hill, overlooking the vineyards, and is locally nicknamed the "Tuscany of Bordeaux". Winemaker, Daniel Sore, utilizes the art of modern wine-making to produce Bordeaux wines that are characteristic of the local terroir.
