The company was founded in 1840 when Pierre Dourthe (* 1811) married in the commune of Lit-et-Mixe in Southwest France one wine trade opened. His son Jean Dourthe (1841-1905) moved the company's headquarters to Bordeaux in 1870. The two sons Jules alias Georges (1871-1946) and Arthur Dourthe (1875-1963) founded their own trading business in 1910 under the name "George Dourthe et Compagnie". As a result, several wineries were taken over. The two brothers André (1901-1975) and Roger Dourthe (1900-1984) founded their own company under the name "Dourthe Frères".
