Château Carsin has 20 hectares of which 12 are planted with red grapes and 8 with white ones. Nea Berglund has most of the grape varieties grown in Bordeaux, which means 3 white grape varieties and 6 red ones.

She is one of the few in Bordeaux, perhaps even the only one who produces a red wine with all six allowed red grapes: cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, carmenère, petit verdot and malbec. She also has the rare sauvignon gris. She wants to make wine with character and with the least possible “interference”. The grapes must be really ripe when they are harvested. At the same time, she says, it is extremely important to have a good acidity.
