Château de Caraguilhes
Caraguilhes was one of these areas and one of the most important. Ideally located on the Boutenac terroir, Caraguilhes covers an area of 600 hectares including a vineyard of more than 100 hectares in one piece, surrounded by 500 hectares of scrubland. The garrigue forms around the vineyard a grandiose and natural circus which protects the arable land like a jewel case.
In 1998, Lionel, who could no longer run Caraguilhes, reluctantly made the decision to sell his vineyard.
He meets Pierre Gabison and a partner and is convinced that their partnership can succeed in carrying the proud tradition of a production philosophy focused on organic quality, which began 40 years ago.
In 2005, Pierre Gabison, deeply in love with the wines of Caraguilhes and the region, took over the management of Caraguilhes. He then wishes to perpetuate the passion that reigns around the vineyard and the castle.
Pierre sums up his line of conduct very simply: to produce an authentic wine of high quality, from healthy vines, which offers a natural expression of the different terroirs of Caraguilhes.
