From its beginnings our winery has distinguished itself by a policy of diversification. In addition to the traditional grape varieties such as Chasselas, Pinot Noir and Gamay, we can offer Aligote, Pinot Gris, Muscat, Scheurebe, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Merlot, Viognier and Syrah. Our range comprises some 20 different choices, including several wonderful reds aged in oak barrels.
The whole process, from care of the vineyards to the bottling of the finished wines, is done locally on the domain by Frederic and Ludovic, assisted by a motivated close-knit team.
The family Mistral-Monnier has run the winery since its creation in the early sixties. Marius Monnier, the pioneering ancestor, was the son of a winemaker from the village of La-Tour-de -Peilz near Montreux. From an early age, he was immersed in the world of vines and winemaking. His father was the owner of the famous Clos-de-la-George domain at Yvorne.
Marius Monnier arrived in the canton of Geneva in 1947 and did not at all leave the world of wine as he was working as head-winemaker in the production of Champagne style wines. From 1954 to 1966 he and his wife ran the Café de la Poste in Dardagny, and also worked with the Friederich Brothers , winemakers based in Dardagny. Meanwhile, he bought a few parcels of land around the village.
