Values & Teams


A history of commitment(s) and toil.

Three generations have helped elevate the Estate to this level of excellence. This is a story of commitment and hard work, with the greatest respect for the land, the vine and the men and women who work it.
Achieving the most exquisite possible expression of the vintage is not guaranteed; a rarefied terroir, consecutive vines, a wine created through effort, patience, listening, attentiveness, etc.
Here, this always means giving your best, sticking to your values and following your beliefs, caring by relying on the support of skilled teams, trained in the specific features of the Estate and charmed by Christine Vernay’s strong beliefs.

in the shadow of those who craft it »
Georges Vernay


The reputation of such a renowned Estate is also forged by the men and women who work in the vineyard and in the cellar.

After running the Estate alone for over 10 years, Christine is now assisted in the vineyard by her younger brother Luc Vernay, who manages and supervises the field teams. Together they oversee the people who are involved in and committed to the adventure. Depending on the time of year, up to forty people work at the Estate, carrying out the essential tasks required by organic farming on the steep slopes, where everything is done by hand.
