In 1858, our family made its home at Château des Combes, an estate with a few hectares of vines in Ladaux, a small country village south-west of Bordeaux. Over the years, our passion for wine became a professional vocation, and both the ‘savoir-faire’ and the vineyard were successively handed down and expanded.
Today, the Ducourt family possesses one of the largest independant vineyard holdings in the region : 440 hectares of vines, spread out over 13 châteaux in the Entre-Deux-Mers and Saint-Emilion appellations, which produce 2.5 million bottles per year. We also manage 100ha of biodiversity area.
Each generation has managed to adhere to the philosophy dictated by our elders : to get the best out of each ‘terroir’ through a combination of traditional common sense and current techniques to produce ‘pleasure’ wines which are both authentic and affordable. Respecting the environment and our customers’ expectations is also essential to our work ethic.
