Welcome to Château Nozières

Château Nozières is a family concern located in Vire-sur-Lot in the heart of the AOP Cahors wine area.
Nozières offers a full range of all kinds of wines : some fine rosés, aromatic whites and of course several red Cahors Appellations.

In 1955 Pierre and Paulette Maradenne acquired the property which was then an agricultural concern. The activity in those days was spread over some 10 hectares of vineyards, next to lavenda and cereal fields and cow pastures... The first bottles were produced in the 70’s. Today Olivier Guitard , their grandson, works on the Domaine next to his parents Claude and Pierrette. If you come to visit, it is no exception to meet, still today, the three generations busy about the property.

The Maradenne Guitard family work a domain covering around 50 hectares (500,000 m2/123.5 acres), over the sunny terraces of the village of Vire-sur-Lot considered to be some of the finest growing areas in the Cahors wine region. On a patchwork of vineyards we grow our Malbec traditional historical grape, also known as Côt or Auxerrois which gives our Cahors wines their typical character. Our objectives always remain to develop the best knowledge of the soils so that the Malbec can fully express its potential.

The Maradenne Guitard family offer you wines which aremost carefully developped by craftsmen from vine growing to bottling through vinification and maturing. Here, every stage leading to maturing is undertaken by the Château Nozières team : we are "vignerons indépendants"(independent wine growers).

The Domaine is a member of the « Accueil Vigneron du Lot » network (Lot Wine Grower Information network).
