François Thienpont & Stéphane Derenoncourt
Terra Burdigala - the ancient Roman name for the region of Bordeaux - is the direct result of our shared passion for winegrowing in Bordeaux and its rich diversity.

We were determined to gather together a group of winegrowers who believed in the same high standards of quality as we do: respect for nature, low yields and wines with real authenticity.

From meticulously selected vineyards, sometimes far removed from the most fashionable appellations, our primary aim is to offer all Bordeaux-lovers excellent and undeniably "good value for money" wines.

Every stage, from the simplest to the most complex, is crucial to us: we take great care to carry out each one seriously and thoroughly, as we want the wines of TERRA BURDIGALA to be completely authentic and a true reflection of nature's wonders.

We launched this venture in the spring of 2001 and are involved every step of the way, from the vine to the bottle, so that our wines are a true testimony of our concept of Bordeaux: fruit, balance and pleasure.


With both of them devoted to wine and totally convinced that the time has come to work differently, François Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt complement each other ideally : While François organizes the business side of the company, Stéphane takes care of the vines... By uniting their different skills and working closely together, this duo is undoubtedly one of TERRA BURDIGALA's greatest strengths.
