The Tour de By is a family estate of 94 hectares, founded in 1599. The first part of the name refers to the large tower on the property, the de By from the location of their vines - the de By sector in the Medoc. The Pages family, fronted by Marc Pages, bought part of the estate in 1965 and is today the sole owner.
Their wines consist exclusively of noble grape varieties (60% cabernet-sauvignon, 35% merlot, 5% petit verdot), the vines' average age are approaching 45 years (however some are as old as 100 years). Since the 1980s, La Tour de By has minimised the use of chemicals and practises ecological methods to manage diseases and parasites.
