Domaine Boissonnet, Serrieres - Northern Rhone

Domaine Boissonnet Condrieu

The Boissonnet family has been in the town of Serrieres in the district of Ardeche since the 17th century. The family house and the underground cellars date back to 1600. The first cellar was restored by André Boissonnet, and the second cellar was found by accident in the 1990's by his son Frederic, who is the current winemaker.

Frederic uses both cellars as the perfect place for aging their production of Saint Joseph and Condrieu. 1990 was an outstanding vintage as well as a turning point in the life of the domaine, which at the time was only comprised of five acres of red Saint Joseph: Frederic vinified his first cuvees as he took over the domaine that year. In 1994, the domaine grew with Saint Joseph white and Condrieu followed in 1995.
