Château Cadillac

C

Chateau Cadillac is itself a late Middle Ages chateau/fort the ramparts of which date back to the 1200’s. The first chateau was destroyed by the French in 1450 just before the end of the 100 Years War as the then Seigneur, although French, was a supporter of the King of England. The present chateau was rebuilt in 1500. Historically, the ‘ancienne regime’ proprietors of Chateau Cadillac, the Barons de Cadillac, were breeders of heavy cavalry horses which were held in high regard throughout France. This connection is maintained in another guise up until the present day with the Cadillac Car Club of France being occasional visitors to the chateau.

More recently, the property has been given over to making wine and the tradition of excellence is being continued by the Serisier family who are the current owners. The family have a long connection with the wine industry beginning generations ago in Bordeaux and progressing through to the earliest beginnings of winemaking in Australia at their ‘Eumalga Vineyard’ located just outside Dubbo in New South Wales.
