Sylvie and Marie Courselle are sisters and oenologists from Bordeaux. Together, they run Château Thieuley, their family estate near La Sauve in Entre-Deux-Mers, Bordeaux. Château Thieuley was bought by their grandfather in 1950, but it was their father, Francis Courselle, who made the estate famous. He was a renowned expert in white wines and an oenological educator at Bordeaux University.

Marie and Sylvie Courselle were raised in vineyards and wineries, steeped in the practice and culture of winemaking. It is here where they inherited their father's passion for wine and created Le Petit Courselle.

The two wines "Les Copains" and "Les Copines" (Friends!) reflect who we are - they're happy wines, full of generosity for bringing people together and sharing."
