Dominique Haverlan

Winegrower and builder are two words often used to describe Dominique Haverlan, born into a family of winemakers that has remained true to this terroir for multiple generations...


Wanting to stand on his own two feet, in 1988 Dominique Haverlan acquired Vieux Château Gaubert in Portets, then in disrepair. His energy is boundless, and he is a builder through and through. Tugging on his boots, he chose to embark on a winemaking adventure by wresting the estate from the hands of developers and elevating it to one of the greatest Graves wines of all.


Dominique Haverlan is therefore equally passionate about the stones used for building as he is about the gravel and sand that feed his vines. An owner who takes an uncommon approach to running his estate.


Building on this fruitful method with pride in his white and red wines that delight enthusiasts and professionals alike, Vignobles Haverlan has been able to set its sights higher and take charge of numerous other chateaus in the Graves and Pessac-Léognan wine regions.
