One of the remarkable thing of the vineyard is its sides of hillsides exposure, offering a very large sunlight conditions thanks to an exposure mostly south-east to south-west. The vineyard offers a density average of plantation raised with 5200 vine stocks / hectare. The average age of the vines is a bit more than thirty years old.

Château Haut-Peyrat vineyard is developing itself on a limestone and clay-limestone soil.
It has a very specific particularity, the one to bring together terroirs from the right bank (clay) and from the left bank (clayey gravelly) on the same domain. This large rank of soils is conducive to quality and complexity of wines and those are singularities which assign Haut-Peyrat a lot of similarities with the great terroirs of Bordeaux region.
