About The Producer

Winemaker

Marie and François Giraud

The “domaine” saw the light of day thanks to Pierre and Mireille Giraud’s zeal and two families coming together. The story begins in 1974 when Pierre and Mireille, as their parents did before them, took on 4 hectares (10 acres) of vines. Little by little the Domaine has grown through years exclusively on the appellation. In 1998, Pierre was ready to pass on his love of the vine and wine to his children. Marie and François took on the estate hand-in-hand. Under their parents’ watchful eye, they devoted themselves to tending vines and winemaking. They focused their efforts on selecting parcel by parcel, doing minimal treatments, upgrading their cellar to make finer and finer wines while respecting family traditions. François tries hard to tend each parcel and variety respecting the “terroir” as much as possible, that alchemy nature provides us with, to fully express our grapes’ full character. Renowned oenologist Philippe Cambie consults for the Domaine.
