Their Story

Domaine Séailles is a family-owned estate since 1961 and lies in the commune of Mouchan at the heart of Gascony, just a stone’s throw from the Château de Laressingle and the Abbaye de Flaran.

The domaine occupies a terroir which lies on high hillsides and is very much favoured by geology because it is made up of fine clay limestone soil and broken stone, with an eastern and southern exposure and an amazing amount of sunshine. The estate is made up of 25 hectares of vineyards half of which are planted both with white grapes: Sauvignon, Gros Manseng, Ugni Blanc, and red: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. The Ugni Blanc grape is essentially used only for the Domaine’s traditional product, the Armagnac Ténarèze.

Healthy and happy is a easy way to describes the vines of Domaine Séailles.

The Domaine is one of the pioneers in organic viticulture making Côtes de Gascogne wine. There has been no use of any chemical fertilisers, herbicides, insecticides and synthetic chemical products since 1998, thus encouraging a strong expression of grape varieties. The Domaine certified Agriculture Biologique by ECOCERT and is currently undergoing NOP certification.
