    THE STORY: While the creation of Chateau Mauvesin Barton is a recent event, the chateau and vineyard date back several hundred years. In fact, Chateau Mauvesin Barton was created in 1457. The chateau on the property, which is now used as the residence for Lilian Barton and her family was built in 1853. For most of its life, the property produced wine that was sold as Chateau Mauvesin. But when the estate was purchased in 2011 from the Baritault de Carpia family by the Barton family, things changed for the better. The Baritault de Capria family is related to the Capbern Gasqueton family that recently sold Chateau Calon Segur in the St. Estephe appellation. The Barton family own the famous St. Julien estates; Chateau Leoville Barton and Chateau Langoa Barton. They altered the name of the chateau and winery from Mauvesin to Chateau Mauvesin Barton to reflect the change in ownership and their commitment to quality. At first, Lilian Barton was not going to add her family name to the historic chateau, but when she discovered that Chateau Mauvesin was already a trademarked name in China, she changed the name of the estate to Chateau Mauvesin Barton. Melanie Barton Sartorius, the daughter of Lilian and Michel continues to expand her role at the estate. Prior to the sale to the Barton family, the property was in the hands of the Baritault de Carpia family for several hundred years. Once the purchase was finalized, the new owners, Lilian Barton and her husband Michel Sartorius began a serious restoration and renovation of the entire estate, including the chateau, wine making facilities, cellars and replanting of portions of the vineyard. At the time, the vine density was quite low, with many rows of vines missing. The cellars of Chateau Mauvesin Barton were modernized, the wines are now vinified in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks.
