Marquis de Goulaine wine producer

Marquis de Goulaine
This estate is regarded as the oldest commercial enterprise in France, and the oldest wine business in the world. They’ve been making wine here for more than a thousand years - and they're still owned by the same family.
 
Robert, the previous Marquis de Goulaine, revived the fortunes of the run-down estate after acquiring it from his uncle in 1957. A noted author, famed shot, and jazz enthusiast - he once invited the Duke Ellington orchestra to play at the Chateau - he was also the winemaker and designed the bottles.
 
Robert died in 2010 and the estate is now run by his son Christophe, the 12th Marquis de Goulaine.
