Château Timberlay is the family home. It dates back to 1366 and was established when the Bordeaux area was under British rule. The British sounding name comes from the heavy winds that blow from the Atlantic Coast and would knock down the trees around the Chateau. The British said it would ‘lay the Timbers’, so came the name Timberlay. The British were influential in taking Bordeaux wines to the four corners of the earth. Today Château Timberlay is enjoyed in 75 countries. In Canada it is one of the longest standing Bordeaux wines on the market. This is tribute to the quality but also to the ability of the Giraud family to adapt wine making styles and continue developing the wines over the decades to ensure the wines surpass expectations.
