The de Conti family originates from Italy, South of Treviso, in the Veneto. It was Guillaume’s great-grandfather, and Luc de Conti and Francis de Conti’s grand-father, Vincenzo, who settled in the in the village of Ribagnac in 1925, having left Italy due to famine and lack of work. He found work as a crop-sharing tenant farmer on the farm belonging to the château de Bridoire of Ribagnac. on his death in 1956, his son Primo took over the farm but refused ’the state of slavery’ that involved being a share-cropping tenant so he simply rented the farm from the château. Primo’s two sons, Luc and Jean and their cousin, Francis all grew up together on the family farm in Ribagnac. Albert then bought a small property with 20 hectares of vines in the nearby village of Saint Julien d’Eymet. Later in the 1980’s, Luc and his brother bought the farm that their family had always farmed and created an agricultural and viticultural business together. The first bottle of wine labelled ‘Château Tour des Gendres’ was produced in 1986. In 1990, their cousin, Francis, joined the family business, bringing with him his 20 hectares of vines at Saint Julien d’Eymet. Francis, his son, Guillaume, and Luc now run Château Tour des Gendres together.

A fresh and fruity sparkling wine with low alcohol, light sweetness and a delicious refreshing taste.
