history

In 1826, Jerome Medeville, a barrel maker in Cadillac, bought Château Fayau, «a monastery surrounded by twelve hectares of vines enclosed by walls and hedges.» Over the subsequent years, the Medeville family grew in size by acquiring land and vines around Château Fayau.

Each generation has since contributed its own knowledge to enable the growth of the chateaux. The meticulous and intelligent management of estates together with a deep love of the land, by the descendants of Jérôme and Numa, have resulted in vineyards that continue to expand and modernize.
