The Domaine's Evolution, written by Pascal Mugneret (Nov. 2019)
I decided to become a vigneron in order to have freedom in my professional life. Working for the family domaine was also an opportunity to preserve what my great grandfather René and my father Gérard created. Finally, I wanted to do something with my hands. This is how, in 2005, I took over from my father, with the intention of carrying on the family tradition. Then, a transition took place. I progressively became absorbed in all facets of this unique profession: the vineyards first, then the vinification. Sales came later.
Looking back, I realize that compartmentalizing these different aspects was a habit I had kept from my first career as an engineer. Unconsciously, my first ten years as a winemaker created the framework for a deeper, more integrated reflection.
