In 1850, Jacques Curial, acquired the ruins of the Château Préty which were all that remained after a somewhat perturbed period in the history of France. The building is situated in Saint-Vérand, at the confluence of two streams, the Arlois and the Préty. The vineyards are particularly well-exposed on the neighbouring hillsides.
Before going back to run the family estate in 1992, Philippe Curial worked in Bordeaux for the well known Classed Growth in St Emilion, Chateau Beau-Sejour-Becot, and the world famous consultant and oenologist, Michel Rolland. Shortly after he worked for the famous Clos Pegase, Cuvaison and Chalk Hill Wineries in California. Today, Philippe and his wife Murielle carry on the wine making tradition with passion, subtly combining modern methods with traditional techniques to produce outstanding wines with finesse and elegance.
