A3TS EVENING: Thursday, June 14

The evening A3TS will take place at the Château GISCOURS – GRAND CRU CLASSIFIED IN 1855 – MARGAUX

Located in the heart of a 300-hectare estate, the Giscours vineyard comprises 93 hectares in the Margaux appellation.
This castle is rich in history: a very old history dating back to the 14th century.
A defensive dungeon overlooked a wild and inhospitable countryside. But everything really began in 1552, when Pierre de Lhomme, a rich clothier from Bordeaux bought the noble house of “Guyscoutz”, built a vast estate around it and planted the very first vines. The wine adventure was on.
Giscours is still a continuation of the generations of winemakers who have made this area a Grand Cru renowned worldwide.
