The birth of Gilbaud Frère Domain

 

Les fondateurs.jpg

Descended from a long line of wine-growers and local personalities, Edouard and Marcel Guilbaud founded Guilbaud Frères in 1927.

They devoted themselves to providing and guaranteeing quality products.













A FAMILY OF CONNOISSEURS WHO TAKE WINE AND TRADITION SERIOUSLY

A second and then a third generation have since perpetuated this illustrious mission, according it the same rigorous attention, and abiding by the family motto for taking wine and tradition seriously.

The privilege of having farnily vineyards, an intimate knowledge of the land, and of having established close relations over the years with the wine-growers of Mouzillon and surrounding areas have given Guilbaud Frères a reputation for quality. Local men, they draw upon their wealth of experience to judge, select and produce the finest wines.
