The Martin family has been based in Saint-Julien for more than three centuries and has engaged in various different professions all with links to viticulture (farmers, cellar masters, managers, coopers), whilst at the same time owning a little vineyard known by the name of Château Haut-Beychevelle Gloria. This cru, which is considered to be the family's historic property and crown jewel, was the original source of Henri Martin's passion for wine.
