One château, one history, one family!

The history of Le Grand Verdus wine is also that of the Château, which dates from the Renaissance, and of the Le Grix de la Salle family, who decided after World War II to grow their little vineyard into a renowned winemaking enterprise.

Here is a brief history of Château Le Grand Verdus, which has witnessed the birth of many great wines that are now recognised and exported to over twenty countries worldwide.

Key dates of Château Le Grand Verdus

In 1947, Philippe Le Grix de la Salle, the first wine-grower in the family, began to grow vines after World War II.
Harvests came and went over the next 30 years, with the vineyard weathering lean years, the cold winter of 1956 and the unavoidable reduction in planting densities.
