    Everything started in 1990, when Florence and Daniel Cathiard fell in love with Château Smith Haut Lafitte and its charming, 18th-century house, during a flight over the Bordeaux vineyards.

    Daniel Cathiard, founder of the Go Sport chain, and Florence Cathiard, Vice-
    President of McCann Europe, decided to give up their stressful careers and start a new life by buying Château Smith Haut Lafitte.

    Florence and Daniel Cathiard observed that a low-lying area in the vineyard
    produced lower-quality grapes than the rest. A water diviner was called in and discovered a natural spring in that spot. Analyses revealed that, 540 metres underground, there was a naturally hot spring with a high concentration of minerals and trace elements. This discovery facilitated the development of the first Vinothérapie® Spa in the world Internationally-renowned Caudalie products are used together with water from the hot spring in a series of treatments devised by Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas.

    The sub-standard vineyard was pulled up to make room for a luxury "hotel de charme" alongside the Spa, opened in June 1999: Les Sources de Caudalie.

    "Caudalie", a term borrowed from wine-tasting, describes the persistence of a wine on the palate: the longer a wine's aftertaste, the higher its "caudalie" rating.
