Geocache Description:

[FR] Le château de Haute-Serre est situé sur la commune de Cieurac dans le Lot. Il est aujourd'hui un Château viticole et un restaurant gastronomique.

[EN] The castle of Haute-Serre is situated on the municipality of Cieurac in the Lot. It is nowadays a wine-making Castle and a gourmet restaurant.


[FR] Le vignoble de Cahors date du Moyen-âge. En ces temps là, il s’étendait sur les coteaux de St Henry, Cieurac, le Montat et Mercuès, comptant en tout plus de 1000 hectares. Au cœur de ce vaste vignoble, les vignes du Château de Haute-Serre prenaient racines dans un terroir argilo-calcaire digne des plus grands vins.

La crise du phylloxéra porta un coup fatal au vignoble du château à la fin du XIXe siècle. Il faudra attendre les années 1970 pour voir à nouveau de la vigne sur ce causse argilo-calcaire cadurcien, quand Georges Vigouroux, un négociant lotois, racheta le château pour lui rendre sa destination viticole.

Il est aussi à noter l'ouverture du restaurant "La Table de Haute-Serre" en 2008 dans les chais du château.

Vous touverez la cache à l'entrée de ce superbe endroit.
