Nathalie and Xavier Miravete are wine lovers who bought Château Toumalin in 2008 with the objective of perpetuating its exquisite history.
To do so, they purchased the estate from Paul-Bernard d’Arfeuille, who had inherited the castle from his mother Françoise d’Arfeuille.
She was no other than the daughter of Paul Delahoutre, a wine-and-spirit merchant who lived in the north of France and who bought the Toumalin estate from Louis-Charles Montouroy in the 1930s as part of his Bordeaux area investments.
In his day, Louis-Charles Montouroy had acquired the property from the first known owner, Antoine Dumon. While the founding date of the estate remains a mystery, it is certain that it was already active as early as the beginning of the 19th century.
Château Toumalin therefore represents a heritage and expertise that has been passed down for nearly two hundred years, since Antoine Dumon, the first known owner born in 1814, died at the property in 1859.
