Château Gloria and its vineyard, located in Saint-Julien de Beychevelle, both have an atypical story. Henri Martin started to create the estate from the 80's, cautiously, row by row, exclusively buying parcels from Grands Crus of 1855 nearby. During several years, he managed to convince his neighbors from Saint-Julien to buy each plot for sale which are the secret of today's high quality wines. On the same path for quality and sharing, Château Gloria has created Le Bordeaux de Gloria. This wine is gingerly selected by the
château team in order to meet any convivial moment all over the year. " ~ Winery notes

Chateau Gloria

View all from Chateau Gloria
Chateau GloriaA relatively young estate, Château Gloria was founded and assembled by Monsieur Henri Martin who established the reputation of Gloria within the space of a generation. With the first acquisitions of 6 hectares (15 acres) of vines in
1942, and purchase of the chai of Château Saint-Pierre, Martin added to the estate over the years with land bought from the surrounding classed estates, including châteaux Saint-Pierre, Beychevelle, Léoville-Poyferré, Gruaud-Larose,
Léoville-Barton, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Lagrange and a Saint-Julien property of Duhart-Milon, making up its present size. The estate was included in the proposal by INAO to revise the 1855 classification, and subsequently became listed
in the private classification of Alexis Lichine. The current proprietor of the estate is Martin's son-in-law, Jean-Louis Triaud. The wine is widely regarded as a well-made, with the best characteristics of Saint-Julien, it is estimated
by many to be on a par with the classed growths.

Château Gloria has created the 'Bordeaux de Gloria'. This wine is selected by the château team in order to show the characteristics of the vintage well. This second label is available at Empire Wine at a dramatic value!
