Marquis de Goulaine winery is quite remarkable: it is accepted as the oldest continuous wine producer in the world, making wine since around 1000AD.
It is believed to be the third oldest registered company in the world! The Goulaine family were first mentioned in the seventh Crusade (1248) and today over 30 generations later the noble Goulaine’s are alive and well and still own the beautiful Chateau de Goulaine as their ancestral home. The Marquis himself is a figure reminiscent of the Scottish enlightenment;
very keen on the arts and botany, in fact the family once ran a butterfly farm on their estate. The Marquis can trace his family directly back to Mary Queen of Scots, so the Auld Alliance is alive and well!
