Family history


Our weaver ancestors

According to genealogical researches, the family's ancestors lived on these lands since the beginning of the 17th century.

They were weavers. We have no information about the first vineyard plantations of the family, but they developed little by little.

End of the 19th century

The Phylloxera crisis

The Phylloxera crisis destroyed the family vineyard at the end of the 19th century. Between 1900 and 1905, less than 100hl were produced each year on the estate.

The new plantation started very slowly. Little by little, the production of wine for Cognac increased.

The war slowed down production again. The women and the elders work in the vineyard, maintaining the production despite the lack of manpower.


Our charentais still

great harvest years

The 1970's were good years for the harvest. The family vineyard produces very fine Cognac eaux-de-vie.

In 1975, we harvested the first Pineau des Charentes.

This is where the story of a passion for the Pineau des Charentes. In 1978, direct sales began on the family estate.
