Château de Peyguerol

AOP Costières de Nîmes

The earliest known Château in the Appelation. Part of the village of Générac, it has always been a wine estate and its boundaries have hardly changed over the centuries (53 ha, 22 classified AOC). It gets its current name from Marie-Gabrielle de Peygueirolles who owned it in 1845. Officially recorded in 1749 as being “in the parish of Nîmes”, it was mentioned in 1679 as having been there “since time immemorial” in an official document stating its vineyards. Château de Peyguerol has belonged to the Verdier brothers for the last twenty years.

The red clay gives Costières land a coppery tinge and retains the heavy seasonal rains in the groundwater which irrigates over the year these vineyards set about with tall dark cypresses.
