Our story

Château Guilhem has been a family estate since 1878, located in Malviès, between Limoux and Carcassonne. Today, the fifth generation, embodied by Bertrand Gourdou-Guilhem, is at the helm of the estate, helping it to flourish. 35 hectares of organically grown vines adjoin the property and back onto the Malepère massif. This particular massif, located in the west of the Languedoc region and enjoying close proximity to the Pyrenees, influences the grape varieties: we use only Atlantic grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet and Malbec) in our vineyards, earning us the nickname of "the other Languedoc"! In addition to this climatic particularity, the Malepère soil is essential to the production of our wines. The name of the massif comes from the stone of which it is composed, known in Occitan as "mala peyra", the bad stone... for building! In fact, it's very crumbly, making it unsuitable for building, but perfect for growing vines. During the winter, it soaks up moisture, which it gives back to the vines in the summer, protecting them from water stress and ensuring that the wines retain their freshness. The estate was almost sold ten years ago to foreign investors, when the winemaker's mother left the Château... Her son, Bertrand Gourdou-Guilhem, couldn't bear the thought of the Château and its vines leaving the family, so he burst into the notary's office just before the signing of the deed and kept Château Guilhem in the family!

Other little stories

A little anecdote about one of our vintages, the label of the Bribe dates from the grandfather of the winegrower, who created the latter in a humorous way, and offered bottles at the end of the year to his customers and suppliers. The success was only partially successful at the time, the return is now quite different! The labels are almost identical, only a few colors have been modified, the rest is original...
