This year, the Cruse family celebrates their 70th year at Château d’Issan. They acquired the estates in 1945 right after the WWII. The vineyard was in ruin with only 3 hectares planted out of 45. They restructured and reinvested to highlight the beauty of this unique terroir in the heart of Margaux Appellation. It is now the 3rd generation who owns the Château with Emmanuel Cruse.
more than 700 members of the Cruse family came to Château d’Issan to celebrate the bicentenary (1815) of the arrival of Herman Cruse in Bordeaux.
