Domaine des Geais - CÃ´tes du Marmandais
Domaine des Geais consists of 5 hectares of vineyards located in the Côtes du Marmandais, an appellation just south of Bordeuax, located between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers in Southwest, France.
The domaine is run by the Boissonneau family, who have been making wine since 1839, primarily in Bordeaux. Today, the sixth generation of family members run the estate, led by Pascal Boissonneau who runs the vineyards (with the help of his Uncle Philippe) and the winery.
Since 2007, the family has been practicing organic farming, and in 2016, all of their 72 acres, in Bordeaux and the Southwest, are certified organic. In addition to making organic wines, the Boissonneau family is committed to protecting the biodiversity of their vineyards with innovative techniques, like the use of specific grasses and the installation of beehives.
