Chateau Eugenie: a Family Winery with a Heritage

It is quite rare nowadays to find the cellar which is hosted solely by family members for many years. However, the owners of the Chateau Eugenie is exactly such kind of family. In the regional archives they found out that the Couture ancestors were growing vines since 1470 – unbelievable, 550 years ago! Since that time the family transfered the craft of making wines from one generation to another, from parents to children complementing them with up-to-date best of each generation techniques. The Chateau itself was named after one of the famous representative member of the Couture family – Eugenie who is the great-great-grandmother of the current generation of the family.

Terroir Which Brings Diversity

We are used to the fact that each French wine region has its specialities, for example, Champagne – Sparklings, Provence – Rose, Bordeaux – full body Reds etc. However, this is what makes South West France unique as another French wine region. Its terroir (with rich soil of gravel, clay, silica, limestone, and iron, enough sunshine during the year, interesting complex of grape varities, and great knowledge of local winemakers) allows winery to produce different types of wines. Chateau Eugenie, for instance, produces excellent White and Red; Dry and Sweet; Sparkling and Still; Rose and, even, Fortified wines.

Intersting Facts about Wines Produced in the Winery

The visitors from the Western European countries are always suprised when they find out that Cahor – rich red wine from Malbec produced in Chateau Eugenie appellation – is actually a sacramental wine in the countries of predominantly Orthodox Christian population such as Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Belarus and so on. It was brought there by Russian emperor Peter I who was impressed by the quality of the wine during its visit to France. Since that time abovementioned countries started to produce their version of Cahor but if you want to taste what really impressed the famous Russian commandor, you should come to Chateau Eugenie and taste the Cahor there.
