Family Story / Started in 1950


A 100% family-owned vineyard, the « Vignobles Courselle » started in 1950, when André Courselle bought Château Thieuley located in the famous France Bordeaux Region and lay the foundation of a great vineyard.

In 1972, his son Francis Courselle, a young engineer and oenology professor, took over hte management of Thieuley vineyards. In 30 years, the acreage increased from 4 to 80 hectares spread over three properties : Château Thieuley, Clos Sainte Anne and Château Saint Genes.

Marie and Sylvie Courselle, Francis Courselle’s two daughters, inherited from the family passion. Today, they took over the business and the destiny of Thieuley.
