About the Winery
The current familial company, that the Comte and the Comtesse Alain d’Estutt d’Assay, parents of the current owners decided to recreate in 1952, is now managed by Juliette, the younger daughter. The Château de Tracy keeps improving in order to carry on the spirit of excellence which has always prevailed by producing wines as faithful as possible to our soils. Our work in the vineyard is exclusively focused on the well-being of the plant. We grow the Sauvignon, the unique grape variety of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation, in its colder latitude and thus, the most expressive.
