An Immaculately Kept Vineyard in the Bordeaux Countryside

Located in the famous winemaking region of Bordeaux, the Château De Seguin has been owned by the Carl family since 1973. Their company, Carl Wines, supplies French wine to the American food emporium Trader Joe's, not the most glamorous of buyers, to be sure, but this magnificent property makes up for any shortcomings with the wine. Set on 430 acres of rolling countryside—230 of which are planted with grapes, including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vines—the château itself is a two-story white structure with pointed turrets that is dwarfed by the enormous stone winery next door, which houses the cavernous cellars. The property also includes a wine museum, reception rooms, and various outbuildings for storage, while a picturesque swimming pool and immaculate period interiors keep the owners happy with their $14.6M purchase.
