In 2002, Maison Sichel bought a property in Saint-André-du-Bois 60 km south of Bordeaux and renamed it Château Argadens in reference to the noble family which founded the estate in the thirteenth century.
A major investment programme was launched at Château Argadens to restructure the vineyard, increase plantation density, modernise the winery and build an ageing cellar. Efforts are going on to ensure that this work is carried out with the greatest precision and care, the objective being to allow the quality of the terroir to be expressed to the full.
Château Argadens produces one white and one red wine.
The very first vintage of Château d'Argadens won a medal in the Concours des Grands Vins de France in Mâcon. It wins numerous awards and distinctions every year, proof of Maison Sichel's clear determination to earn Château d’Argadens a place among the best wines in its appellation of Bordeaux Supérieur.
At Château Argadens we opted for Integrated Farming. This is a deliberate choice which allows us to act in line with our values, among which respect for the environment plays a fundamental role.
Château Argadens was one of the very first Bordeaux vineyards to be certified ISO 14001, in 2011, and obtained HVE 3 certification in 2014.
