Since its early beginnings, Douthe has remained true to the values underpinning its rich and unique history: a special bond with the soils, the highest quality standards and an innovative approach. Pierre Dourthe launched this company as a wine merchant back in 1840, but it was the fourth generation, André and Roger, who began purchasing vineyards and properties in Bordeaux. It now manages 500 hectares of vines.

During the 20th century, as well as acquiring various Bordeaux properties – such as Château Belgrave in the Haut-Médoc, Château La Garde in Pessac-Léognan, Château le Boscq in Saint-Estèphe and Château Pey La Tour – the company launched a number of successful wine ranges, including Dourthe No. 1.
