In the 12th Century, the vineyard was known as Bridoire Castle’s vineyard, due to “Les Gendres” being situated on an ancient Gallo-Roman villa. As written in Féret’s 1903 work, Les Gendres was named after the old owner Mr Peyronny, son-in-law of Marquis Foucault de Lardimalie (owner of Bridoire Castle). After sadly being destroyed in the Phylloxera crisis in the early 19th Century, the vineyard now covers only a tenth of what it was originally. Decarbonized soft sandstone from the Agen region (calcium-rich soils on limestone soft sandstone loamy sand-sandstone), clayey-limestone on Asteries limestone (containing fossils) & soft sandstone from the Agen region.
