The château suffered the cessation of its wine-growing function in the 1950s. The estate, which originally consisted of 600 hectares of land, of which a hundred hectares of vines were sold to several owners. The wine-growing area was partially destroyed by phylloxera at the beginning of the last century, and given the Périgord's farming habits of mixed farming, they did not replant the lost vines, and turned to other agricultural activities. In 2000, Mr Franck DECOUROUX became the owner of Château de Peyrel with 60 hectares of woods and meadows.
In 2012, Mr Franck DECOUROUX, a former trader, decided to retrain as a professional and enrolled in a training course at the Montagne Saint Émilion wine school in order to manage a wine business. In 2013, Mr DECOUROUX bought 6.5 hectares of old vines aged between 70 and 100 years old, which were already part of Château de Peyrel. At the same time as acquiring the vines, he built a wine storehouse (vat room, pump, press), and acquired the equipment necessary for the cultivation of the vines. In 2018, Mr DECOUROUX, in order to better respect the environment and to adapt to market trends, undertook the conversion to Organic Agriculture of his entire estate (vines, meadows and woods). The first organic vintage will be harvested in 2021 and the vineyard produces 6 ranges of wines: 3 dry white wines AOC Bergerac, 2 sweet white wines AOC Rosette and 1 red wine AOC Bergerac. In addition, Mr. DECOUROUX, has undertaken planting work for 1.5 hectares of red grape varieties, in order to expand his range of red wine, and to create a range of rosé wine, which is increasingly in demand by our customers.
Our wines are not common. We obviously want to preserve our beautiful appellation, which is Bergerac, and Rosette, but we do not want to fall into the classic category. For this reason, we respect the traditions of our terroir, but we make blends that are very different from the usual ones: we are the only ones, in the AOC Rosette, to make a wine that has undergone complete vinification in oak barrels: Our Cuvée Excellence, and Franck Decouroux, owner of the château, is also the president of the Appellation Rosette. He wishes to advance the appellation, and the Bergerac region, by renewing and modernising what can be done in the AOC's. The terroirs are changing, so are the consumption habits, and so are our wines.
