Bernard Moueix Wines
At the beginning of the 20th century, the whole Moueix family lived in Corrèze. They are farmer-breeders from father to son and live very simply.
During his military service in Libourne, Antoine, my great-great-grandfather, discovered the Bordeaux vineyards and sensed their potential. Courageous and full of daring, he decided to leave his family and plotted fate to start a wine business.
His business worked so well that in 1905 he created his own wine merchant company : Antoine Moueix & Fils. Once settled, he decided to become a winegrower. In 1923 he chose Château Taillefer for his first acquisition. This was the beginning of a beautiful family adventure.
They pass the baton, sometimes with abnegation, each in his own time with his share of successes and difficulties. They all made their contribution and passed on a heritage to their children. This is how my brother and I inherited two wine estates :
Château Taillefer in Pomerol and Château Tauzinat l’Hermitage in Saint-Emilion.
My family heritage is multifaceted. They are wine estates, but also a name, a history, a know-how, and above all, the spirit of success and the love of good wine. By taking over from my parents, I realise how much this heritage transforms me and runs through me : to accept it is to invest it, to maintain it materially, to make it live socially and to pass it on to the next generations.
