During this century a fire devastated the Château.
It was bought by wine merchants who rebuilt it in its current neo-gothic style, underlining the value they placed on the quality of the wine of Château du Grand Mouëys. This priority is being continued by its present owners.
In 1989, the Bömers family became the new owner of Château du Grand Mouëys. The family also used to own the Reidemeister&Ulrichs Company in Bremen, an important company of fine wines in Germany dating from 1831.
The distribution of the wines of Château du Grand Mouëys is carried out by its subsidiary company "Caves des Grands Vins Français " (CAVIF).

Having been faithful to Bordeaux traditions and the French viticulture for five generations, the Bömers family is aiming ambitious objectives. The winery and wine cellar have been entirely renovated and the most up to date control techniques for the wine-making process have been employed: a demanding step showing the necessary commitment for the production of high-class Bordeaux wines.




Château du Grand Mouëys is situated on the right bank of the Garonne River, in the Entre-deux-Mers area where it has been a wine estate since before the French Revolution.
The estate comprises 170 hectares of woods, meadows and gardens of which 80 hectares are set aside to vines. The property lies in calm, well preserved grounds at the end of a half-mile long drive, ideally located for taking long shaded walks on its many paths.

The historical origins of the Château are diverse:
A Gallo-Roman villa of the first century AD that disappeared after the Visigothic invasion of 407.
A medieval legend has it that the Château once belonged to the Templer Knights who hid some fabulous treasure in an underground passage that joined to the abbey of La Sauve Majeure. Subsequently, the Templer Knights would have been burnt alive under royal orders.
However, let us put legend aside and return to the history.
