The Estate


In 1860, Louis Avon embarked on his journeyman's tour round the master-craftsmen of France to learn the art of cooperage.
He then settled in Vacqueyras, where his barrel-making business enabled him to develop and add to his family's few acres of vines.


Passed from mother to daughter for three generations, the estate has opened up new professional horizons.
The women's husbands, who came from outside the vine-and-wine community, have embraced wine with a passion and helped to improve and diversify the vineyards, located in several appellations: Gigondas (3 hectares, or 7.5 acres), Vacqueyras (17 ha) and Côtes du Rhône (2 ha).
