Company details

Gigognan, the story of a rebirth

Since 1996, we have been looking after the estate : Having become "wine-growers per chance", we have come to love our destiny and have endeavoured to give the Chateau Gigognan back its letters of nobility.

As owners of an estate boasting great potential, we have surrounded ourselves with a team that is efficient and loyal.

Fully convinced of the quality of the estate's wines and the exceptional beauty of the place, we have great ambitions for Gigognan:

Renovation and restoration works have been carried out since the acquisition of the vineyard and the castle. In 2007, work was undertaken in the south wing. This project has resulted in the refined and sophisticated construction of private apartments and a bed-and-breakfast since January 2011.

The opportunity to combine wine with tourism, offering pleasure to all.
