1983: Jean-Luc, who became manager, decided to stop all other forms of culture in order to devote his entire efforts to winegrowing, winemaking and expanding the estate.
Ever since, he has consistently bought parcels here and there around the vineyard to extend Chateau Guimberteau to 8.5 hectares in 2010.
This family property has always cultivated under 10 hectares, to keep the human dimension of the estate alive, as much as possible. It is by and within the family that the vines are cultivated and the wine is crafted. This permits to master the quality throughout the entire production chain.
2000 : After winegrowing studies, Jeffery joined the winery together with his parents and grand-parents.
Upon his arrival he changed the visual aspect of the bottle by adopting the now-famous blue label.
Up until June 2016, the wine was vinified in the locality of “Les Eymerits” (commune of Saint Denis de Pile) right beside the family residence.
