has a rich history that begins in the 14th century, when it was a simple defensive tower looming over a savage, inhospitable terrain. The château as we know it today has its real origins in 1552, when Pierre de Lhomme, a wealthy textile merchant from Bordeaux, bought the noble house of “Guyscoutz” and built a vast estate around it, including the first vineyards planted here.
The merchant's descendants added their own chapters to the story of Château Giscours
. In the 19th century the Promis, Pescatore, and Cruse families bedecked the château, transforming it into a Neoclassical palace, bringing in landscaper Eugène Bulher to create a park with rare species, and modernizing production by building immense farm facilities, including the famous “Ferme Suzanne.”
Since early 1995, Château Giscours has been in the capable hands of Eric Albada Jelgersma, who immediately invested in an extensive renovation of the vineyards and winery. He also formed a new team that now continues the tradition of producing internationally renowned wine.
