Men and Women

Genealogical research conducted by René MAZEAU, Oriane and Xavier's grandfather, has highlighted the uninterrupted presence of winemakers in the MAZEAU family from the 15th century up to now.

Charles Mallet, a wine merchant in Paris and Castillon la Bataille, purchased the estate in 1928. His great, great grand-daughter, Oriane Mazeau, has continued the tradition and followed the tradition as the fifth generation of the family to make wines at Château Toutigeac.

The Mazeau family, generation after generation, has planned a high quality vineyard in order to produce well rounded, fruity and generous wines which have long been appreciated by a knowledgeable and faithful clientele in France and elsewhere.
