Château Smith Haut Lafitte vat room was recently renovated in order to accommodate 100% gravity flow and to enable small homogeneous lots to ferment in appropriately-sized wooden vats.

The vat room features state-of-the art technology: a vertical winepress for our red wines and a Vistalys optical sorting system to retain only the finest grapes…

Our red wine cellar is one of the largest underground cellars in Bordeaux.
It can hold up to 1,000 barrels.

Our red and white wine cellars are ideal for reflecting our winemaking team's expertise, as well as that of our master cooper

We are one of the rare châteaux with an on-site cooper. This is because we are well aware that the symbiosis between oak and our great growth is fundamental. Jean-Luc is a true artisan and one of the pillars of our commitment to quality
