Known as Chateau Le Chec until 2012, when its long-time owners changed the name to Auney l’Hermitage, the estate is run by Sylvie and Christien Auney. They produce two cuvées each of red and white wine, favoring Merlot and Semillon in their respective blends. Graves Blanc and Graves Rouge are the core wines of Auney l’Hermitage, and make up the bulk of its production, while the best parcels are dedicated to their higher-end red and white “Cuvée Cana” bottlings. Auney l’Hermitage was gradually assembled through the reclamation of ten small domaines totaling 8.5 hectares.
