At the beginning of the 18th century this property was bought by Sir John Collingwood. His daughter married a Mark Kirwan and the property took on his name. And it was Mark Kirwan who built the chateau we recognise today. After Kirwan's death, the property fell into the ownership of the Mayor of Bordeaux who, in turn, gifted it to the city. The firm of wine merchants called Schroder and Schyler were asked to manage the property and finally, in 1925, S&S bought Kirwan. The chateau is still a home to the Schyler family.

This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
