The estate has been run by the same family since the 16th century with a constant desire for excellence.nnThe vinification, maturing and bottling of the wines are done at the Château, in a cellar of character, where ancestral know-how, passion and state-of-the-art technology are combined. From the 2012 vintage, all our wines are organic. Our objective is essentially the preservation of the soil and its many inhabitants, with a long-term view, in order to leave our children and grandchildren a living land.
Located in the heart of the Gaillac vineyards, a few kilometres from Gaillac, north-east of Toulouse and west of Albi, Château de Saurs is surrounded by its 40 hectares of AOC vines and magnificently dominates the right bank of the Tarn from the top of its slopes. This privileged situation allows the clay and clay-limestone soils of the first slopes to bring finesse and elegance, while the gravelly soils and boulbènes of the lower slopes offer charm, fruit and power to the renowned wines of Château de Saurs.The Gineste de Saurs family has been established in Saurs since the 16th century and has always worked the vineyards. In 1852, they moved into the present Palladian-style Château built between 1848 and 1852 by Eliézer Gineste de Saurs, the great-grandfather of the current owner. Perfectly designed for wine-making activities integrated into the life of the château, it was built entirely over an exceptional vaulted cellar with remarkable brick architecture. In this cathedral lovingly dedicated to the noblest of Gaillac nectars, ancestral know-how, passion and state-of-the-art technology are combined to ensure that the vinification, maturing and bottling of the estate's excellent wines take place in harmony and in optimal conditions.
THE GARDENS OF THE CHÂTEAU DE SAURS...A magnificent alley of two hundred year old umbrella pines, unique in the Tarn, climbs up to the sky and the hillsides, to lead into the woods. The boxwood diamond, seen from the castle, open on the vineyards: flowered from April to October, it precedes the stairs with waterfall. It is like being in Tuscany! For several years, Art has also found its place there, many sculptures are associated with trees and flowers. The gardens, private, are open to the public during our open days or our summer visits.
