Lalande-de-Pomerol is a small AOC north of the famous Pomerol region of the Right Bank of Bordeaux. Here the Merlot and Cabernet Franc varieties thrive in clay and gravel soils. The ancestor of the Petite family began making wine in 1735, handing down his taste for wine through the generations. The creator of Château Tournefeuille was Francois Petite, a hardworking farmhand, who spent twenty years travelling and visiting vineyards, drawing up plans, then scrapping them. Finally, a decision was made in the course of a day in 1998 when Tournefeuille was created. It is fairly common that generation after generation may make wine, but a domain may not unfold until much later. Emeric, his wine-loving son, has since taken over the estate.
