The history of Le Grand Verdus wine is also that of the Château, which dates from the Renaissance, and of the Le Grix de la Salle family, who decided after World War II to grow their little vineyard into a renowned winemaking enterprise. The superb country 16th-century Renaissance residence has been in the hands of the same family since 1810 – four generations, all fired by the same passion for wine.
The vineyard of Château Le Grand Verdus is located in the heart of a preserved hilly landscape, in the AOC Bordeaux Supérieur area, between the areas of Médoc, Graves and Saint-Emilion, at the gateway to the Entre-Deux-Mers region (between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers), 20 km east of Bordeaux city.
