Hubert de Boüard
Hubert de Boüard was born in 1956 at Château Angélus and grew up on the family estate. Hubert is a winegrower at heart whose childhood was spent among the vines. In his youth, he decided he would follow in the footsteps of six generations before him, and he went on to obtain his degree from the Bordeaux Faculty of Oenology, studying under Emile Peynaud.
Among his many titles, awards, and consultancies worldwide, he currently holds the position of Grand Master and President of the Grand Conseil du Vin de Bordeaux. For Hubert, achieving balance in winemaking while respecting people and nature is at the heart of everything he does.
A native of the historic town of Saintes, just north of Bordeaux, Damien Landouar is the winemaker and estate manager for Château Auguste. For more than two decades, Damien has dedicated his career to winemaking in the Bordeaux region. Damien has a degree in agronomy and completed post-graduate studies at Vayres Rural Institute to expand his knowledge of winegrowing, oenology, and the wine trade.
In addition to his work with the Château Auguste estate, Damien also manages three other estates for owner Tom Sullivan including Château Gaby in the Canon-Fronsac appellation; Château Moya, a Castillon-Côtes-de-Bordeaux property; and Château du Parc, a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru.
