Two friends, one vision

What connects oenophile Ferdinand Graf von Thun and oenologist Dr Riccardo Cotarella is many years of friendship and a bold vision: turning the charming Château de Frausseilles into one of the leading vineyards in the south-west of France.

They intend to produce independent and storable high-quality wines with an international reputation, the way it was in the 13th to 17th centuries, and bring in the renaissance of the Gaillac wine region.

When the right people come together, big ideas follow.

Winery

If walls could speak: Thanks to its solid construction, the Château de Frausseilles has survived many stormy times and is now considered a historical jewel of the French southwest. First mentioned in documents in the 15th century and probably built much earlier, Ferdinand Graf von Thun had the weathered building lovingly renovated after its acquisition in 1998 and gave it back its former glory.

Wines

Comte de Thun wines are ambassadors for the wine landscape of south-west France. In style, they differ clearly from other wines of the area, while at the same time being typical of the region; after all, they articulate the Terroir Plateau Cordais in their own way. Comte de Thun wines are individual expressions of their creators’ vision to revive the viticultural success period of the ‘Vins du Coq’.

Terroir

The Count’s vineyard is located on the Plateau Cordais to the north of Gaillac, a wine region in the south-west of France that has fallen into oblivion. Embedded in gently rolling hills along the river Tarn, the elevated plain with its sparse soil is deemed the best terroir of the region with ideal conditions for great wines.
