HISTORY


The Bergeracois winegrowing area has over 900 winegrowers cultivating an area of 30,000 acres. Represented by 9 AOCs (Appellation d’origine Contrôlée), a great variety of wines is produced – red, rosé, or white – which are in themselves dry, slightly sweet (moëlleux) or very sweet (liquoreux).

The Bergeracois area is the only winegrowing region in France that produces nearly as much white as red wine, ie. 52% red and 48% white.

The GS-Domaine de Grimardy organic vineyard is managed by the 15th generation of wine growers – the Establet family, who has a true understanding and affection for both their vines and the wine they produce. Originally from Bordeaux, Establet bought the Domaine in 1998 with the express wish to create a fine wine and GS Palate acquired in 2010 to perfect the organic planting and harvesting of the grapes.
