It was in 1949 that our great grandfather Abel Rigou, wine producer and cognac distiller in St-Martin d’Ary (by Montguyon, Charente Maritime), purchases Montaiguillon. His daughter Genevieve marries Roger Amart. The youthful couple dedicate their life to rebuilding the chateau. Understanding the imperious necessity to sell the wine in bottles, Roger Amart travels to Belgium to find wine-loving customers in the 1950s. This will remain Montaiguillon’s prime market for the upcoming 30 years.

Chateau Montaiguillon warmly welcomes visitors, preferably upon reservation.
