ancestors have lived on the site in Lirac since the late 1800s,
and the family's history is similar to that of many other families
in Rhone. The first generation lived from many
different crops, olives, grains, fruits, vegetables and also
little vines for the family's own consumption. In
particular, the establishment of a cooperative in 1931 meant that
viticulture became prominent. A cold winter in
1956 did away with the olive trees and wine became the main crop.
The last step was taken by a new generation that
received a targeted education "études de viticulture, d
'nologie et de commerce"
In 2015, Jocelyn took over the family property, which
over the years grew to 19 ha. So far Lirac
