Château Phélan Ségur
Château Phélan Ségur comes from Irish Origins, when Bernard O’Phelan (1770-1841), a young Irish wine merchant, left his native town of Tipperary at the end of the 18th century to set himself up in Bordeaux. On the death of Bernard in 1841, this vast estate, whose combined name was Château Ségur de Garramey, was passed on to his son Frank (1820-1883). Frank was mayor of Saint-Estèphe for 30 years.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Château Ségur de Garramey took on its current name of Château Phélan Ségur. After more than thirty years in charge of the property, the Gardinier family has decided to pass on the reins to Philippe Van de Vyvere.
