Did you know ?
François Mauriac was the owner of the Domaine de Malagar.
He had inherited this wine estate from his ancestors. He called himself a “country owner”.
He liked to stay in Malagar in the summer and remained there until the end of the harvest. From the terrace of Malagar he admired “the most beautiful landscape in the world”. His office was located near the winery where they produced “a nice white wine that was not too sweet, perfect for foie gras”.
François Mauriac, 1885 – 1970
