The winery is located in the municipality of Frauseilles in the Tarn department, 65 kilometres north-east of Toulouse in south-west France on the Cordais plateau in the north of the Gaillac region. In the historic Gascony landscape, high-quality wine was already being produced here in the Middle Ages. In 1999, Count von Thun und Hohenstein acquired the somewhat dilapidated Château de Frausseilles, which was first mentioned in 1270, and had it renovated. The historic wine cellar was activated and supplemented by a new cellar. AOC Gaillac appellation wines were produced until the 2002 vintage. Then the autochthonous varieties Braucol (Fer) and Duras were uprooted and, following an assessment by the Italian oenologist Riccardo Cotarella, it was decided to cultivate only international varieties. Since then, the wines have been marketed under IGP Côtes du Tarn.
