A 100% family-owned vineyard, the “Vignobles Courselle” started in 1950, when Andre Courselle bought Chateau Thieuley located in the famous Bordeaux region of France. His son, Francis Courselle, was one of the first to show the Bordelais how to make dry white wine that people want to drink. While teaching at Bordeaux University, he was putting his ideas into practice with considerable success at his charming property Chateau Thieuley at La Sauve, in the centre of Entre-Deux-Mers. His secret lies in harvesting high-quality fruit and preserving its aroma and character in bottle. His two daughters have now followed in his footsteps and are making better wine than ever at this excellent property.
