Château Moulin du Ginestra

MÉDOC AOC – BORDEAUX – FRANCE

The Moulin du Ginestra, originally known as the “Min de Plassan”, was built in 1585. Towards the end of the 18th century, the mill folded its large wings in the face of the expansion of the vineyard. Today, the two hectares, composed essentially of gravelly soil, are carefully worked by Marc Ducousso, the winegrower owner.
