The history of Giscours can be traced back to the 14th century when the tower overlooked a wild and inhospitable region. In 1552, 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. Château Giscours produces red and rose wines of the Margaux appellation.
