The Haute-Serre vineyard before 1970
Witness to an epic past, the Château vineyard already existed in the Middle Ages, property of the Abbey Lagarde Dieu in Tarn-et-Garonne. It used to cover some 1000 hectares. A few religious wars later and never losing sight of its winemaking vocation, Château de Haute-Serre and its vineyard were on a gala menu in 1889 alongside Château Margaux and various wines from Pommard. Great and prestigious, a reference. However it did not escape the phylloxera in the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century: completely destroyed, it was left to the wild vegetation of the Causse de Cahors for nearly a century.
