Chateau Le Vieux Serestin is a Cru Artisan from the Medoc region of Bordeaux. It is located in the north of the Medoc appellation in the city of Cocqueques and is owned by Mr and Mrs Caster who purchased it in 1982.

The Casters bought the estate in a state of abandon and proceeded to grub up all the vines and replanted all the vineyards. The house and cellar was rebuilt several years later. Chateau Le Vieux Serestin was one of the first properties to be classified when Cru Artisan was introduced. Cru Artisan sits just below Cru Bourgeois and gathers together 46 family-owned estates that are committed to quality wine production, with eco-friendly acgriculture, traceability and many other strict conditions. The owner is responsible for his wine, bottling has to be done at the Chateau and the wine must be tasted every year by the Cru Astisan classification body.

Chateau Le Vieux Serestin is a 22 hectare estate planted with : 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc on clay / calcareous soils. In the vineyard, there is green harvesting, leaf removal and only minimal use of chemicals. After harvest the grapes undergo traditional vinification in stainless steel vats with a long (3 to 4 week) maceration and pumping-over twice a day. The wine is aged in one and two year old barrels for 6 months.rn
