It is with the money these «carts» that our ancestors slowly bought the first parcels of vines in the commune of Saint-Estèphe and built the Château currently presented on the label.

Today, the vineyard of Château Beau Site Haut Vignoble is managed by Jean-Louis and his son Pierre Braquessac respectively agronomist and oenologist.
