Borie-Manoux is one of the last family-owned and run independent négociant houses remaining in Bordeaux. It is owned by the Castéja family, with Philippe Castéja as the Managing Director. The firm was originally based in Pauillac but moved to Bordeaux in the late 1940s. Borie-Manoux owns a dozen châteaux, including Batailley, Haut-Bages-Montpelou, Beau-Site, Trotte Vieille and Domaine de l`Eglise. It also acts as a winemaker, distributor and trader and has close links with Berry Bros & Rudd going back many years.
