"The intensity of the wine, a passion for character”. The estate was born in 1974 when Pierreand Mireille Giraud decided to change careers from the distillery business to growers and wine maker. The estate was born from the passion of Pierre and Mireille, from the meeting of two families. Pierre Giraud is the son in line of winegrowers over 6 centuries old. A descendant of the Armenier family, he has always worked his vineyard with passion.
The Buou family had owned the village distillery for several generations, Mireille has always worked in unison with her husband for the development of the vineyard. Today, she is in charge of all the administration of the estate. The story begins in 1974 when Pierre and Mireille started to cultivate 4 hectares of vines as sharecropping. Over a period of 12 years, the estate gradually expanded with the acquisition of land for rent and sharecropping. In 1981, Pierre and Mireille transformed the family distillery into a wine cellar for the vinification and maturing of the wines. The same year they gave birth to their first vintage at the estate.
