Domaine Anthony et David Girard
Anthony Girard took over the family domaine in 2007. It was originally created by his great-grandfather Serge Renard. Serge planted the vines on the Monts Damnés, working everything by hand and "treuil", a kind of cable chain used to hoist supplies up a steep vineyard. Serge's son, Andre Renard-Fleuriet continued. He is followed by Sylvie Girard, his daughter and mother of Anthony and David, and she remains active with the harvest, as do their grandmother and great-grandmother. Harvest is done entirely by hand and fermentations are done with only neutral yeasts. In 2015 Anthony's brother David joined him in the domaine. There are 3 hectares of vines all on the Monts Damnés and the vines are now 70 years old.
