Château Siran, a 25-hectare vineyard in a single block located in the Margaux appellation, has been managed since 2007 by Édouard Miailhe, the sixth generation of the same family since 1859, who has undertaken an in-depth restructuring of the estate.
In 2008, Édouard Miailhe concentrated his efforts on the vineyard and launched a major replanting program. The vines are cultivated in sustainable agriculture with experimentation in organic farming on several plots since 2018. The vineyard is worked like a garden, plot by plot, according to the requirements of the terroir: tillage, grassing and green work... The use of inputs is limited to the strict minimum, with a preference for organic products or techniques.
Each year, improvements made to the vineyard, the search for optimal maturity and a serious sorting at harvest time enable the cellar master to vinify grapes of the highest quality.
In 2018, six new vats were added to the property’s thermo-regulated stain-less steel vats to allow even more refined vinification and more complex and precise blending possibilities. In 2019, the malolactic fermentation cellar was rebuilt.
A forerunner in the field of wine tourism, Siran has been open to visitors for over 40 years and offers to share the family's passion for the art of creating great wines and tasting them. Siran is one of the few châteaux in the Médoc that can be visited every day from May to September and the rest of the year, from Tuesday to Saturday, by appointment.
In addition to an elegant chartreuse built at the end of the 18th century by the Toulouse-Lautrec family and a superb garden full of roses and cyclamen, the visit allows you to discover the cellars and old wine-making facilities as well as the remarkable collection of wine-related objects created over the years by Brigitte and Alain Miailhe, beautifully displayed in the new Chai des Collections. This space won Wine Tourism's Best of d'Or in 2017. Since 2020, the collection of works of art that decorated the labels of the great wine from 1980 to 2007 is also displayed.
Château Siran is an original property with many unique surprises including the panoramic terrace with a superb view of the Médoc and the Gironde estuary and the atomic shelter built to house the Château Siran wine library dating back to 1912.
