Giscours has a rich history dating back to the 14th century. A defensive dungeon overlooked a wild and inhospitable countryside. In 1552, Pierre de Lhomme, a rich draper from Bordeaux, bought the noble house of "Guyscoutz", built a vast estate around it and planted the very first vines. The wine adventure was on the march and the successors of our wealthy merchant were able to make their contribution to this formidable building. In the nineteenth century, under the leadership of the Promised, Pescatore and other Cruse Giscours is adorned with its finery: transformation of the castle neoclassical palace, landscaping a park with rare species by the landscape Eugene Bülher, modernization of production tools with the construction of huge farm buildings, including the famous "Ferme Suzanne" ... The story of Giscours is fascinating and countless anecdotes ... In 1995, Eric Albada Jelgersma, a Dutch businessman takes over the operation and undertakes a meticulous work of restoration of the vineyard and the renovation of buildings to restore all the nobility befitting the Third Grand Cru Classé of 1855.
