Notes on the producer
Château Tour des Gendres is produced at ‘Les Gendres’ situated at Ribagnac, which has been owned by the de Conti family since 1981. Built over a ‘Gallo-Roman’ site the soil here is very calcareous. Winemaker Luc de Conti runs his 50 hectare organic vineyard on biodynamic lines, growing his grapes as near as possible to the ground and using no fertilisers.
