Château Moulin des Richards

Wine has been a passion for my family since 1772. Our ancestors were winegrowers and already cultivated some of the historic plots in the vineyard that are still there today. In 1956, my father combined his parents’ plots with those belonging to his wife to create Moulin des Richards. I enjoy recalling that the 70 hectares vineyard we now have covered only 4 hectares at the time. I joined in 1980 on finishing my winemaking studies, and took over in 1998. With the greatest respect for longstanding family traditions I have equipped the estate with modern oenological techniques. Since 2010 my son Damien has continued the family winegrowing vocation by joining me, bringing fresh new ideas born from his experience throughout the world.

From Les Richards, the hamlet where the family has always lived and where some of the old plots of vines are situated.
