Chateau La Borie
was built in th 18th by a descendent of a prins af Orange.
It has through the centuries been used as a summer resident or a hunting
It's 110 ha was forest or vasted area until the owners in the 20th
to plant some vines.
From former buildings at the place a vaulted underground tunnel
connected the place to the nearby Chateau Suze-la-Rousse, which was
founded by the cathars
in the 13th century. Chateau la Borie and Chateau Suze-la-Rousse are
both situated at strategic high points in the landscape.
In 1963 most of the hundreds of French wine growers in
Algeria had to return to France. One of these so-called pieds
noirs was Emile Bories who seeking for vineyards in
France discovered that a property in Suze-la-Rousse was for sale
Together with a friend Jacques Margnat living in Marseilles he bought
this place and named it Chateau la Borie. It's the surname of Emile
Bories which has named the place, but today it's his friend's surname
represented by the sons of Jacques Margnat, Eric and Jérôme Margnat
who have run the domain since 1978.
Jérôme Margnat got his oenological education at l’Université de Changins
in Switzerland, and Eric has a degree in Mathématiques et Informatique
from the university of Grenoble.
