Our Family

Vue géranium (1)

 

 

Henriette and Armand, Paulette and Jean, Chantal and Jean-Yves and Nadia... These people represent the identity of Château Petit Mangot. They are the women and men in the Decamps family who over the years have made this wine they are so proud of.

The history of a wine is often the history of a family. Our history is to be found in our bottles.

''It has taken a lot of determination, stubbornness and passion to produce our special nectar, but our greatest success has been to pass on our attachment to this vineyard to our daughter. She will be at the helm of Château Petit Mangot for many years to come.''

Chantal and Jean-Yves Décamps
