Château La Hourcade

AOC appellation : Médoc

"In the turmoil of the 1940s, an Italian from the Florentine mountains, Septime Cecchini, works to defend the coastline. He was called "Les Diguayres". He fell in love with the Médoc and a woman from Pauillac. They married and had a daughter and seven sons. Mr. Cecchini, who had become French, was educated and became a postman in Jau-Dignac and Loirac.

In addition to his work, this lover of good food acquired 4 hectares of vines that would give the smallest vintage of Château La Hourcade almost 50 years later. In 1985, Gino, his youngest son, bought the vineyard. Gino, an experienced horseman, served in the French mounted cavalry. Until 1988, the grapes were taken to the cooperative cellar. But during his years of service, he never lost sight of his native Médoc and with his brother Florent, they bought adjoining plots to expand the vineyard. In 1989, back in his region, he left the cooperative to make his own wine and start a family. Today he owns more than 18 hectares of vines, was a local councillor and then mayor of the village until 2014. Gino is now passing on his passion to his son Quentin, who has returned from Bordeaux to devote himself to the family estate.
Gino Cecchini, a winegrower attached to the work of the vines, in love with and respectful of the land. "For a reasoned and reasonable viticulture".
