    Chateau Astrelus began quite unexpectedly. This is their story... "We moved to France in 2008 and started a family. We had been living in the Middle Eastern desert for a number of years and were looking forward to starting a new adventure in the lush green countryside of France.

    Our search for a dream home, brought us to Cazaugitat: where we found a beautiful stone house surrounded by tranquil vineyards in the land between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers.

    When we were told that the house came with 7 hectares of impeccably kept Bordeaux Superieur producing vines, we were shocked as we had no idea about vineyards or making wine. Fortunately, the previous owner offered to look after them for us.

    After several seasons of watching the vineyard be worked, wine glass in hand, from the vantage point of the sunny garden, we started to wonder… if maybe we could do it ourselves, maybe we could look after the vines, pick the grapes and make our own wine. So at the beginning of 2014, with the help of some very talented and experienced people, our journey into winemaking began".
