    THE STORY: Chateau Monbrison was founded in 1749. Prior to its birth, Chateau Monbrison was part of the much Medoc larger estate, Chateau dArsac, which belonged to the wealthy Segur family, who were some of the most important founders of the entire Bordeaux region. The charming, French, country styled farmhouse predates the estate as a vineyard as it was built in the 17th century. Monbrison was purchased by an American, Robert Davies in 1921. Robert Davies married into the Johnston family, who are well known negociants in Bordeaux, and owners of various vineyards, including Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou over the years. Chateau Monbrison remains the property of direct descendants of the Davies family today. Robert Davies replanted the entire vineyard in 1939. The vineyard was replanted a second time in 1963. Chateau Monbrison has endured its up and down periods over the centuries. At various times, the owners preferred leasing their Left Bank vineyards to various negociants as well as to other chateau in Margaux, most notably Prieure-Lichine. Starting with the 1974 vintage, Monbrison has bottled and sold their entire harvest. Laurent Vonderheyden, a descendant of the Davies family is the owner and director of Chateau Monbrison today.
