Château de Gaudou: from lavender to wine production

The Château de Gaudou is truly as grand as it sounds. Situated in the historic southwestern region of France, the massive beige walls, towers and large windows of the winery trace their history to the middle ages. The history of the name begins in 1733 when the ancestors of Fabrice Durou settled in Gaudou. From there, generations of innovation and cultivation followed, from lavender to wine trade, from the extension of the vineyards to the first sale in bottle.

The first label at the winery was created in 1966 by Fabrice’s grandfather, Jean-Louis Durou, and thus began a new generation of modern winemakers building on the traditions of the long line of their family, which has brought Château de Gaudou to the world it is continuously growing and thriving in today.

Great emphasis is put on tradition, innovation, the terroir, and the love that Durou family has for the wine in its production at the winery. Several varieties of grapes are cultivated, such as Malbec, Merlot and Tannat, and with each production, the family is looking to constantly diversify their product, prioritise their range, and reinvent themselves.

The winery follows the principle of minimal intervention

In turn, the Gaudou wines are the kind of balanced wines, rich and delicious, that can be appreciated in their youth as well as age. As a result of minimal artificial intervention during cultivation, the vines are more natural and mature, leading to a deeper and fuller yield. Their range of red, white, rosé and sparkling wines are pure, fresh, distinct, and a unique yield of the Cahors.

At the Château de Gaudou, there’s a rich blend of history, innovation and finesse in their wines, and this you can taste with every sip you take
