1897, Fernand Ginestet founds "Ginestet & Co" and settles on the symbolic Quais de Bacalan in Bordeaux. Demonstrating true entrepreneurial vision, Fernand Ginestet applies himself to uniting its interests of viticulture and trade. He pioneers what is today called the "Interprofession Bordelaise", by creating the "Estate and Trade Union", which in 1948 becomes the Bordeaux Wine Council. For more than a century, the culture and the know-how continue. Maison Ginestet's policies remain faithful to Fernand Ginestet's philosophy, committing to a comprehensive approach to production management which aims to strengthen the positive impact which agricultural practices can have the environment, even beyond the measures stipulated by regulations. In order to complete this environmentally-friendly approach to winegrowing, Maison Ginestet has gained the certification required to bottle wines made from organically-grown grapes and offers a complete range of these.
