In 1991 Christophe Galon took over the family's vineyards. Through the years until 2009/2010 he delivered the grapes to the cooperativ. In 2009 he made and bottled his first wine a Chateauneuf du Pape with the name Montagne Vieille. Since 2010 Gigondas and Vacqueyras are also made and bottled. Vacqueyras is made in an old cellar in Vacqueyras.
Since 2014 the name has been changed from Montagne Vieille to
Domaine les Semelles de Vent

The domain covers 0,22 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape (at Côte de l'Ange), 8,5 ha in Vacqueyras, and 3,3 ha of Gigondas.


Christophe and Yu Yen have in recent years built a very beautiful home one kilometre from Vacqueyas. Christophe has always been a traveller - especially in the far East. Twenty years ago he met Yu Yen in China. She is born in Taiwan. In their home you can see many beautiful things they have brought home from the far East.

Christophe draw himself the illustrations at the labels - new for every vintage.
