Background

The Malepère is a region with a long history. Indeed, it has been shaped by the Roman occupation and shaken by religion wars and Catharism, the latter still occupying a significant place in the local landscape. Crops have always been cultivated on this land, thus encouraging the development of trade. It is from the XVIIth century and onwards that the number of vineyards increased in the Aude territory, and therefore, in Malepère.
It is in this context, in 1791, that the Marquis of Auberjon bought land from the Saint-Benoit Abbey after the French Revolution, in order to build a Directoire style Castle on what was once a Gallo-Roman stronghold. What is now Château Guilhem was built.
In 1878, the Guilhem family took over the vineyards and winery; and it is now Bertrand, representing the fifth generation, that pursues the family tradition.
