L'abus d'alcool est dangereux pour la santé, consommez avec modération...
The story begins in 1733, when Fabrice Durou's ancestors settled in Gaudou. Seven generations followed, each with their own share of innovation and modernisation.
From the cultivation of lavender, to the trade of wine in barrels, from the extension of the vineyard, to the first sale in bottles, Château de Gaudou has been built over time and men and women who have been able to tame this land!
We couldn't tell the whole story in detail, but certain events seem essential to us in our History.
In 1966, Jean-Louis, Fabrice's grandfather, created the first label. Gaudou wine is now marketed in bottles. He actively participated in obtaining the AOC Cahors in 1971, which marked the beginning of a new era for our entire region.
In the 1980s, it was René and Brigitte, Fabrice's parents, who made their contribution to the building of a new, modern, state-of-the-art, totally stainless steel wine storehouse! The property prospers and grows!
And so, at the beginning of the 2000s, Fabrice made his return, after several experiences in St Emilion, Cahors and Australia. Commercial development, extension of the vineyard, new wine storehouses, new techniques in the vineyard as well as in the cellar, he brought with him a wind of novelty! With his head full of ideas, he diversified his products, prioritised his range, and brought a new dimension to the estate: reasoned and sustainable agriculture.
The path continues, different with each season, often winding, but a little more rewarding each time!
