Armando MARQUES, a native of Esmoriz in Portugal and from a family of coopers, moved to Bordeaux in 1971 and worked for several cooperages in France allowing him to gain excellent local cooperage experience and expertise.

In 1988, he founded the MARQUES, Tonnellerie des Graves cooperage in Martillac, in the heart of the Graves, one of the most typical wine growing areas of the Bordeaux wine region.

The Tonnellerie des Graves cooperage started producing hand-crafted barrels and soon included many of the Graves châteaux among its clientele.

It quickly developed the sales of its hand-crafted barrels to châteaux throughout the Bordeaux wine region.

Since 2001, the cooperage has been exporting to California and Europe (Portugal, Italy, Spain)

In 2005, Armando’s son, Antonio MARQUES took over the Tonnellerie des Graves cooperage.

Today, the MARQUES cooperage continues to perpetuate traditional skills and expertise in order to preserve authenticity and quality.
La Tonnellerie Marques cooperage is open:

  • From Monday to Thursday from 8:00 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 17:00
  • Friday from 8:00 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 16:00
