The estate is located in the commune of Frauseilles in the Tarn department 80 kilometers north-east of Toulouse in Southwest France on the Cordais plateau in the north of the area Gaillac, In the historical landscape Gascogne high-quality wine was already produced here in the Middle Ages. In 1999, Count von Thun and Hohenstein acquired the somewhat dilapidated Château de Frausseilles, which had been mentioned for the first time in 1270, and had it renovated. The historic wine cellar was activated and a new cellar was added. Appellation wines AOC Gaillac were produced until the 2002 vintage. Then the indigenous varieties Braucol ( Fer ) and Duras cleared and after a soil analysis of the Italian oenologists Riccardo Cotarella decided to only cultivate international varieties. Since then, the wines have been under IGP Cotes du Tarn marketed.
