Chateau Guiraud

Man and land

Some men

Mankind makes history and memory transmits it through time. A terroir is also a matter of skill, savoir-faire, of people belonging to a living place, a work place. Experience and human observation are worthier than any modern survey would it be the most efficient.

Guiraud’s strength lies, among other aspects, in the fact that its workforce has been living in this very land for an average of 20 years. Wine is just like the people who make it: it evolves slowly but surely. Thus the making of a great growth is the result of a long and continuous thinking.

It often takes a whole human life to get to know a land and its distinctive identity. And so the best wines are made by those who know time for what it is worth.
