    • Château Vieille Tour, a 16-hectare family property nestled in the Côtes de Bordeaux on the right bank of the Garonne, embodies winemaking tradition and ecological innovation. Located in the heart of rolling landscapes, this vineyard benefits from south-facing slopes, offering ideal conditions for growing vines.

      Jérôme Gouin , owner-harvester, perpetuates his grandfather's wine heritage by cultivating his vines in a traditional and eco-responsible way. The clay-limestone terroir of Château Vieille Tour, with its well-ventilated slopes, allows optimal maturity of the grapes and ensures excellent health of the vines. This unique terroir, located in the prestigious Cadillac region, in Côtes de Bordeaux, gives the estate's wines exceptional quality.

      Alongside his wife Béatrice-Anne, Jérôme recently rethought the estate's commercial strategy, placing emphasis on the sale of bottles to individuals and for export. Together, they redesigned their range of wines, while integrating eco-responsible practices. The preservation of biodiversity is at the heart of their concerns, with the planting of fruit trees and the use of horses for manuring and fallowing.

      The couple also developed a wine tourism activity, “La Bulle Verte, tranquil exploration”, offering tours on electrically assisted mountain bikes. This initiative allows visitors to discover the wine and natural heritage of the estate in slow tourism mode, thus sharing their passion for wine and terroirs. Château Vieille Tour is not only a place of wine production, but a true haven of peace where tradition and modernity meet harmoniously.

    Very nice experience. We chose the electric bike ride followed by wine tasting option. This is a very nice initiative. The weather was very beautiful and this allowed us to visit the area via small paths in the middle of the vineyards, stopping at a few essential points where explanations were given to us. The welcome was very attentive and the tasting was nourished by exciting and passionate explanations. Château Vieille Tour is truly delicious. We shared the exceptional vintage that same evening with friends. we had a great time. We already regret not having brought more.

    Here you will meet friendly and welcoming owners who will share with you the passion for their vines during the tasting. Possibility of taking a pleasant orientation walk around the area and renting electric scooters and bikes. We can't wait to take part in a summer evening at the foot of the old tower in a tavern atmosphere!

    A very warm welcome, excellent wines, all punctuated by a bike ride in the vineyards and a picnic at the foot of the tower. Go there with your eyes closed. David and Nathalie.
