Southern Rhone Valley - Domaine Eyguestre

Domaine Eyguestre is a long family history. Indeed, the farm was created by Louis Bellion, my great-grandfather in 1919. He practiced polyculture there (cereals, pasture, olives, fruit trees, vines).

Quite naturally, my grandfather Ismaël succeeded him. He acquired several plots still intended for mixed farming. He mechanized operations with the first tractors.

My father Lucien, at the beginning of the 1980s mainly lead the exploitation towards viticulture. At the end of my studies, I seconded him for 3 years before taking on the vineyard in 2000. At that time, I made the choice to specialize only in viticulture. I still kept the olive orchard to market my olive oil for direct sale.

I am therefore the representative of the fourth generation and responsible for vines for 20 years. Having a passion for my profession, my terroir and wine, I wanted to enhance my work and obtain a product that resembles me.
