The Cuilleron family has a rich winemaking heritage spanning three generations. It all began with their grandfather in 1920, followed by Uncle Antoine, who assumed control in 1960. Yves Cuilleron, at the age of 26, continued the legacy by establishing himself in Verlieu and taking over the estate in 1987. Over the years, the domaine significantly expanded from its initial 3.5 hectares in Condrieu and Saint-Joseph to an impressive 59 hectares, encompassing renowned appellations throughout the northern Rhône Valley. Seven hectares of these vineyards lie in the Côte-Rôtie appellation, characterized by a uniform granitic terroir on the right bank of the Rhône River. Yves Cuilleron's approach to winemaking rejects passing trends, as he neither adheres to conventional nor biodynamic methods. Instead, he follows his unique philosophy, with a simple goal: cultivating the finest grapes possible. All vineyard tasks, from pruning to harvest, are meticulously performed by hand, free from herbicides and exclusively relying on organic fertilizers. The wines undergo aging exclusively in barrels, with white wines maturing for nine months and red wines up to eighteen months.
