OUR HISTORY

  • First Generation : Léon Galhaud

Founder in 1901 of the MAISON GALHAUD. President of the nurserymen for more than thirty years, Léon Galhaud will make at the Manoir the "grafted-welded" vine plants from the best clonal selections and will thus participate in the qualitative improvement of French wines.

  • Second Generation : Jean-Jacques Galhaud

​​

His son, Jean-Jacques GALHAUD, sold wines from the family’s vineyards, as well as other wines from the South-West, all over the world.  His main goal was to promote the AOC wines.

As a pioneer of wine marketing, he created ads, personalized bottles and received international awards and acclaim for his efforts.  As owner of several domains in Saint Emilion, such as Chateau Tertre-Daugay, Chateau le Couvent (Grand Crus Classes), he was instrumental in developing the reputation of the appellation all over the world.

  • Third Generation : Jean-François Galhaud​

 

Jean-François, of the third generation, has inherited his passion for vines and wine from his peers. After studying viticulture and oenology in Bordeaux and Montpellier, he first turned to the wine trade (Promocom, Scodex Wines) with a strong export orientation. In 1996 he and his wife redeveloped the vineyard, which today consists of the three Saint-Emilion Grand Cru wines Château La Rose Brisson, Moulin Galhaud and Château La Haute Rouchonne.
