Description

2922 – RED WINE CHÂTEAU DE CARAGUILHES 2021 – LES GOURGOULES – FRANCE

History: In 1958, Lionel Faivre, a winegrower established in Algeria, took over Caraguilhes with the aim of perpetuating the tradition of the property and making an authentic wine, a mirror of his region. Lionel is then a pioneer in the introduction of ecological cultivation of the vineyard through sustainable ecological techniques. His refusal to use chemical fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides was not understood at the time. Almost 30 years later, he completes the evolution of Caraguilhes by adopting a completely organic production method.

In 1998, Lionel, who could no longer manage Caraguilhes, regretfully made the decision to sell his vineyard. He meets Pierre Gabison and a partner and is convinced that their partnership can succeed in continuing the proud tradition of a production philosophy focused on organic quality, started 40 years ago.

In 2005, Pierre Gabison, deeply in love with the wines of Caraguilhes and the region, assumed the management of Caraguilhes. He then wishes to perpetuate the passion that reigns around the vineyard and the castle. Pierre summarizes his line of conduct very simply: to produce an authentic wine of high quality, from healthy vines, that offers a natural expression of the different lands of Caraguilhes.
