L'Hêtre is a very new winery, but its vineyards have a long history. For the last 10 years, Château Goubau was the dominant force in the region. However, when Jacques Thienpont visited the estate and discovered the wonders of the terroir, he and his sister Anne De Raeymaeker decided to buy it. Later they also bought the neighbouring Château La Montagne winery to create a large wine company in the heart of Bordeaux.

La Raison d'Hêtre Côtes de Castillon comes from young vineyards lying on plots on the lower slopes. These vines are planted on clay and limestone soils. Ecological agriculture is used and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness. La Raison d'Hêtre Côtes de Castillon is an organic, barrel-aged red wine.
