Château Giscours 擁有悠久而豐富歷史,可以追溯至十四世紀。當時那只是一棟俯視著野外及荒蕪環境的保守城塔,1552 年才算是真正開始,因為當時一名波爾多富有的布匠,買入了一個貴族的大屋,並叫它為 Guyscoutz 。他開始把它變成一個巨大的莊園,並種下了第一批葡萄樹。他開始出產葡萄酒,而這個富商的每位繼任者為這偉大的建築都作出了自己的貢獻。到了十九世紀 Pescatore 及 Cruse 兩家族履行承諾,Giscours 更趨完美,酒莊改建為新古典主義風格的宮殿建築師Eugene Bülher 為現代化了生產設施,加建了高大建築物其中包括著名的Ferme Suzanne。

Giscours has a long, rich history, which can be traced back to the fourteenth century. At that time it was a defensive tower overlooking a wild and inhospitable region. The real beginning came in 1552, when Pierre de Lhomme, a wealthy Bordeaux draper, bought a nobleman’s house called “Guyscoutz”; he proceeded to turn it into a vast estate and planted the first vines. Wine production was launched and each of the rich merchant’s successors made their own contribution to this magnificent building. It was in the nineteenth century under the promise, Pescatore and Cruse families that Giscours gained much of its finery: the château was transformed into neoclassical palace, architect Eugene Bülher and the production facilities were modernized with the construction of huge buildings, including the famous "Ferme Suzanne".
