Chateau Feytit Divon, Saint-Emilion - Bordeaux

Chateau Feytit-Divon

The property was originally owned by the Dusseault family and was called “Clos Grand Faurie.” Pierre Feytit was an employee there and bought his first five acres in Saint-Emilion. At that time, the Dusseault family donated 3 acres to Pierre in Saint-George-Saint-Emilion to thank him for his hard work and devotion. Pierre and his wife had three sons. The youngest, Gerard, inherited 5 acres of Saint-Emilion in 1936 and 2.47 of unseeded land that his brothers gave him. His wife Sylvaine and he worked and planted these vineyards. In 1939, Pierre served in the 2nd world war, leaving his wife with two young children. Sylvaine tended to 7.4 acres of vine and the sale of the wine production allowed her to buy another acre adjacent to the existing vineyard. Since then, the property has grown with each new generation, inheriting and purchasing more plots.
