We cultivate our vineyard of 16 hectares of vines in the Bordeaux region in the Canon-Fronsac appellation. Located in the commune of Fronsac, our vines are located on clay-limestone slopes that overlook the entire Dordogne valley. The vineyard's grape varieties are classic with Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Since 2006, we have been leading the vines in organic farming to try to make the Fronsac terroir express itself even better. By respecting the soils and ecosystems present in the vineyard, we were labelled organic in 2018.

In the cellar, we only use indigenous yeasts and almost no sulphur.

Our story

Tom Sullivan, an American of Irish origin, bought the property in 2016. Today, the Boston businessman has acquired 4 estates on the banks of the Bordeaux vineyard. The man falls in love with the view from the property, with the Dordogne Valley and the village of Fronsac at his feet.

Tom discovered wine quite late but has always been passionate and intrigued by this environment from across the Atlantic continent. He is not necessarily interested in the American terroirs, which he believes are tannic and not very progressive from vintage to vintage.

When I wanted to settle in the Bordeaux region, I looked in the Médoc but it was much too expensive. I then received the files of Château Gaby and Château Moya on Canon-Fronsac and I immediately won. It was clear that these two areas had great potential for development.

Other little stories

When I arrived in France to visit the castles, I didn't speak French very well. I like to joke that I bought Château Gaby because it was the only estate I could pronounce roughly the name of.
