Welcome to la Maison du Vigneron in Sauternes
“La Maison du Vigneron” means The Winegrower’s House. And this is exactly what it is – a spot where winemakers meet! Michel, Xavier, Sylvie and Chrystelle Desqueyroux are the 6th generation of wineproducers in their family. They have been working passionately at Château Cherchy-Commarque for more than 50 years. The winery straddles two famous wine appellations: Graves and Sauternes.
The Desqueyroux family produce red, dry white and sweet white wines from the Graves appellation and different reserves of Sauternes. They were also pioneers in the domain of wine tourism, and have been welcoming visitors and tourists since the beginning of the 1990s, guiding them through the beautiful Sauternes vineyards in a relaxed and informative manner.

They embarked on another adventure in 2004, deciding to to open their own wine shop in the very heart of Sauternes village. Chrystelle Desqueyroux sells the family wines (>lien) along with a wide range of other Sauternes. Meanwhile, Xavier and Sylvie manage production, sharing their time between the vineyards and the wine cellars.
Treasures from other family estates and world-famous Classified Growths of Sauternes peacefully share the boutique’s shelves, along with a selection of red wines from the most popular Bordeaux appellations. There is also a wide range of local, gourmet products that are rigorously tested and tasted before being selected !
