A large castle, 8 centuries of history

The history of the Château de Tiregand stretches over 8 centuries, but the current castle dates from the 18th century. It was remodeled in the 19th century by the La Panouse family, making it a veritable pleasure chateau for hosting and organizing large receptions. It is this festive and convivial spirit that one feels when approaching the large English-style entrance dome, but of neo-classical inspiration, which one passes to enter the castle. It is the architect Louis Garros who is at the origin of this superb set comprising no less than 45 pieces! As soon as you enter, you are struck by a monumental spiral staircase in solid mahogany and red Languedoc marble. This central vestibule serves as the function between the two parts of the castle, the corner pavilions and its main body. From room to room, we cross the ages, thanks to the wallpapers, tapestries and period furniture... The castle is " in its own juice ", but connoisseurs will immediately see its potential!

A wine château that still produces wine on its estate

Although Louis Guyot bought the château, its outbuildings and part of the estate (that is to say the part that you will visit during the games and the visit), the wine-growing activity continues. The Saint-Exupéry family perpetuates the production of an excellent Pécharmant on the family estate. Valued by the “ High Environmental Quality ” label, the cultivation of vines is responsible with regard to the environment. Several types of wine are produced on the estate: 4 Pécharmant which is the appellation of this wine region in Creysse, 2 Grand Millésime cuvées, 1 Clos Montalbanie and 1 dry Bergerac Blanc. Some of them have been rewarded at the Concours Général Agricole Parisien, with bronze and silver medals. These are wines produced on gravel soil, fruity and invigorating. Some of the estate's vines are over 58 years old, giving reds with accents of morello cherry, fleshy, with good length in the mouth. Let yourself be seduced by these wines at the end of your visit to the castle, a tasting will be offered to you!
