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 1973, Philippe struck out on his own, leaving the cooperative in Créon to make his own wines on the estate. This was the beginning of Le Grand Verdus as a winemaking château, with its own bottle and label. The wine was aged in vinification cellars under the magnificent rafters of a wing of the 400-year-old château.
