In 1989, Gérôme and Dolores Morand-Monteil created Château Terre Vieille, located on Maine de Biran’s property.
They developed the vineyard with their four children : Ombeline, Pierre, Mayeul and Paloma. Thus, Château Terre Vieille is a family vineyard in the middle of Périgord, in Pécharmant.
Pécharmant is a designation which stretches on the Dordogne hillsides in the northeast of Bergerac. We produce a very typical red wine, both powerful and aromatic on our 13-hectare vineyard.
Our wine is very traditional and our grapes grow in a clay soil.
After his studies at l’École des Cadres, Gérôme decided to left Paris to create his vineyard in Périgord.
