The winery is located in Pessac, in the Graves region, very close to Bordeaux. Their vineyards of red varieties consist mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot and Cabernet Franc; those of white varieties consist of 3 hectares of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

The vineyards for Château Haut Brion have an average age of 30 years, although some strains are now over 90 years old. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in new French oak barrels for 24 to 27 months.

Most of the barrels they use are produced in their own cooperage.
