It was in 1990 that Frédéric Boissonnet took over the family estate. The 17th century house located in Serrières (Ardèche) in the heart of the Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, hides vaulted cellars, restored with passion where their Saint Joseph and Condrieu are raised. On the steep slopes overlooking the Rhône valley, they work nearly 11 hectares of vines (10 hectares in AOC Saint Joseph and 1 hectare in AOC Condrieu) with the greatest respect for the terroir and control of yields.
It is in the respect of the the family traditions that Frederic, along with his son Guillaume, works the vineyard, honouring his father with the cuvée Bélive, for example. And of course, one of these traditions is the respect for the terroir and its biodiversity. Between Vienne and Tain l'Hermitage, we can see their steep hillside vineyards longing the Rhône, osmosis between sky, land and water. They take pride in the beauty of their land, hence they do whatever they can to preserve it.
