The company was founded in 1840 by Pierre Dourthe, a hotelier from southern Aquitaine who became an associate in a negoçe in Bordeaux. The first major turning point was in 1929 when Roger and André Dourthe purchased Chateau Maucaillou in Moulis, giving the Maison the real basis for its development, with a vision linked to the terroir. I Unlike the negoçiants in Bordeaux, which were based in the Quai des Chartrons in the city, Dourthe chose to develop its business in the heart of the vineyard, in Médoc. The two brothers associate the name Dourthe with a reputation, where the constant research for quality and innovation is accompanied by a perfect and integrated management of the vineyard. Today, Dourthe is a family group, grouping together and managing 9 châteaux and cultivating more than 500 hectares of vineyards. A unique combination that represents different terroirs, styles and quality levels for the wines of Bordeaux, consecrating Dourthe as above all a “winemaker” with wines that are known and considered in the world as must-have!
