The history of Giscours is long and rich which can be traced back to the 14th century when the tower overlooked a wild and inhospitable region. In 1552, the actual beginning happened when Pierre de Lhomme, a wealthy Bordeaux draper, bought a nobleman’s house called “Guyscoutz”; he proceeded to turn it into a vast estate and planted the first vines. Since 1995, the estate is run by the Dutch Albada Jelgersma family. The new generation has the zeal and ambition that perfectly matches with the heritage of winemakers who turned Giscours into a worldwide renowned classified growth.

 

The terroir where the estate is located is special as it possesses all the qualities required to produce a great wine. The soil components are ideal and also the vines get proper sun rays, the stable temperature at night, and an altitude of twenty meters. In addition to the ideal climatic conditions, the team who look after the entire process are such dedicated, hardworking and knowledgeful that they make sure they harvest the best grapes and bring out the best from them into the wines.
