Chateau Gadet Terrefort was founded in 1921 by Fernand Bernard, the groundfather of Anais Bernard, actual director. A that time, the winery was globally composed of 4 hectars in Gaillan. Time after time, Anais' father, Christian Bernard, bought new plots. Now the vineyard is about 34 hectars, half located in Gaillan (Western area of Medoc), half in Ordonnac (along the Gironde estuary).
Although the extension, the family still works together, as in the past. Moreover they continue their other different activities : cattle farm and wooden stakes production.
