They produce 14 different wines across six different wine growing appellations. Chateau du Cros is the main property of the Famille Boyer and is located in the small Bordeaux appellation of Loupiac. Chateau Mayne consists of 18 hectares of vineyards the family own 35kms to the south of Bordeaux in Cerons in the heart of the Graves region around Mayne d’Anis. These were bought by Michel Boyer in 1971. The vineyards here are characterised by the typical gravelly soils of Graves with large pebbles with sandy / limestone subsoil.

The vineyard of Chateau Haut Mayne is situated on the left bank of the Garonne River, 35kms to the south of Bordeaux. The vineyard is 9 hectares in area planted with 5000 vines per hectare with an average age of 30 years old.
