Winemakers Note

Gloria, a masterpiece shaped by a genuine family In the world of wine, family is a much-flaunted value; many talk about it, yet few experience it quite like the Triauds. The story starts at the cusp of the Second World War, when Henri Martin, whose grandfather was a winemaker at Gruaud-Larose, acquired plots of vines from a number of classified growths in Saint-Julien, patiently building "his own" vineyard, Château Gloria. Work of a lifetime, Henri Martin devoted thirty years' hard work to finding its lustre. It has now become one of the Medoc's most famous "non-classified growths". Then, in the mid 70s, the family business was boosted by the arrival of his son-in-law, Jean-Louis Triaud. This arrival marked the beginning of a 40-year carreer for this charismatic man with a wonderful sense of humor. Henri Martin and Jean-Louis Triaud worked hard, side by side, to develop both family estates. Gloria, the seductive, voluptuous and surprising wine features, along with Saint-Pierre, among "the greatest value wines in the whole of Bordeaux". Today, Jean Triaud, along with his wife, Caroline, and his brother-in-law, Orphée Amougou, is the third generation at the helm of the family estates. And the 4th is already on board. Thus, this family knows how to work collaboratively to preserve and to pass on this magnificent family legacy. In 2021, to achieve that goal, they have launched the conversion of the vineyard to Organic Farming.
