Léon Nony established the Château Treytins estate in the 1950’s, but its vineyards were planted in the 19th century by the Count de Kermartin.
After Léon Nony’s death in 1959, his son, Michel, then his grandson, Jean-Marc, continued his work building up the vineyard estate.
In the 1990’s, the vat room and cellars were extended and completely renovated to incorporate new techniques and the latest thinking in terms of vinification and ageing, while preserving traditional know-how.
