History of Gramenon

A barn and 12 hectares of old vines in Montbrison purchased in December 1978 by Philippe Laurent
and Michèle Aubéry-Laurent . The full harvest was vinified since the very first year and the first cuvee
was issued in 1979, of which the cuvee “Ceps Centenaires”.

Time has passed and further plantations have extended the surface of the vineyard, as well as the
purchase of several plots of land (4.5 hectares) in 1999 on the terroir of Vinsobres.

When Philippe accidentally deceased at the end of 1999, Michèle decided to keep up to job alone.
Maxime-François, one of her three children, joined her in Gramenon in 2006 and started a little wine
merchant business at the same time.

In 2007, the purchase of a land on the high plateau of Valréas increased the total surface of
cultivation up to 25 hectares.
