Château Moulinat, is a family story, but most of all, a story of women. The winemaker's great grand-mother, her daughter, and then her granddaughter passed along the love of the vine. A very feminine filiation that has lasted since the XIXth century, as demonstrated by a stone of the house dated from 1840. The name comes from the nickname of the miller which recalled his functions : “moulinat”.
