A strong point in the Bordeaux wine area: this family business has been passed from mother to daughter since 1881.

The "Vic" estate and its house were bought by the Roussereau brothers at an auction before the marriage between Miss Dumas and one of the brothers.



Inheritance of a vineyard covering 3.5 hectares.





Publication of the "Domaine du Vic" in the property directory by son-in-law Mr Isnel Guiraud.





Mr Jean-Pierre Arnaud (husband of Madame Simone Arnaud, daughter of Mr Guiraud) left for Paris to fetch his first car after three long years of waiting. On the road home, he sold several bottles of white wine.  It was an avant-garde and postwar business, working through direct sales.




Mr Gino Marcuzzi married Monique, the eldest daughter. Thanks to a strong family bond, Château du Payre was able to firmly establish itself as a vineyard with the acquisition of red vines.



Valerie Marcuzzi, Mr and Mrs Marcuzzi’s second eldest daughter, married Mr Labrousse and continued the passing down of the family property for another generation. 





Valerie has managed the wine storehouse since 2006 which grew by 900 m² to meet European standards. It welcomes tourists from all the world.

 



Since 2008, every wine is certified with the TERRA VITIS label, representing a sustainable and reasoned growing method.

 






 

In 2016, the regular and rising oenotouristic activity is done with the Bacchus theme at Château du Payre containing four rooms, and recently a table d’Hôte. This professional reception is recognized by the chamber of commerce of Bordeaux :

1)    - Best of Wine Tourism in 2013

2)    - Best of d’Or in 2015
