Continue this wine experience at Château Giscours*. Giscours is rich in its history, dating back to very ancient fourteenth century. A dungeon was then overlooking a wild and inhospitable land. But all began in earnest 1552, when Pierre Lhomme, a rich draper from Bordeaux, bought the house noble "Guyscoutz" built a wide area and planted the first vines around this dungeon. The successors of the rich merchant knew then how to build this great building. In the nineteenth century, the Château has had his greatest transformations: transformation into a neoclassical palace, development of a park with rare species by Eugene Bülher, modernization of production tools with the construction of huge farm buildings, including the famous "Ferme Suzanne”... Since the beginning of 1995, the management is provided by Eric Albada Jelgersma, who immediately invested the renovation of the vineyard and farm buildings. He surrounded himself with a new team who now heads Margaux and in the continuity of generation’s growers who have made this area World famous Grand Cru.
