On the hillsides in Monein, near to Pau and facing the Pyrénées, this eight hectare estate is very old. According to legend, a ‘gersois’ (a person from the Gers) named Montesquiou, came to the Béarn to get married and founded the estate which still bears his name. It has been passed down from father to son. Today Sébastien and Fabrice Bordenave Montesquiou are at the helm, producing five types of wine which are typical of the appellation. The estate includes a traditional Béarnaise house and a wine cellar made from pebbles. Guided tours of the set up, tastings and direct sales are on offer and campervans are welcome.
