It was in 1725 that Irishman Thomas Barton settled in Bordeaux to start his company, which is today the city’s oldest winehouse still in activity… His grandson Hugh teamed up with Frenchman Daniel Guestier and in 1802 their partnership became official. From the Chartrons area in the center of Bordeaux, barrels and bottles were loaded on board of ships that sailed via the Garonne river to numerous countries, starting with Ireland, England, Holland and the USA to reach over 130 countries at present.


The Barton & Guestier range represents the wonderful diversity of French wines from the main winegrowing regions: Bordeaux, Loire Valley, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Rhône Valley, Languedoc, Gascony and Corsica. With its wide variety of wines, Barton & Guestier enables wine lovers - from the occasional wine drinker to the connoisseur - to make a journey through France. The B&G winemakers team guarantees constant quality and style, vintage after vintage.


At Barton & Guestier, Character, Knowledge and Art of Living are the core-values that guide our teams and build strong partnerships.


At Barton & Guestier, we are guided by the visionary and pioneering spirit of our founders, Thomas Barton and Daniel Guestier, embracing as they did, every chance to discover new horizons, passionately.


At Barton & Guestier, from vine to wine, from vinification to tasting, with our expertise and commitment, we aim perfection. Additionally, we make a point of honour of conveying our know-how, both through time, from one generation to the next, and through space, from one country to another, from one culture to another.


At Barton & Guestier, we have proclaimed "Art Of Living" our company philosophy. We are lucky to share this state of mind of generosity and sharing with the guests we welcome at Château Magnol and the people we meet around the world.
