On the slopes of the Cévennes foothills, between the Gardon valleys and the garrigue country, the Saint Jean de Serres vineyard is located at the junction of the Languedoc and the Rhône valley, on clay-limestone soils. The ancestral grape varieties of Carignan, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah rub shoulders with the more recently planted Viognier, Merlot and Chardonnay. The black grapes are harvested by hand from selected plots, and our whites are harvested at night by machine to avoid the heat of the often torrid summer days. The elaboration of our wines exalts the intrinsic qualities of our terroir thanks to innovative methods combining rigor and inspiration to offer surprising and varied wines.

Our story

Our family settled on these lands at the beginning of the 20th century when it acquired the village "château" and its small vineyard. For 5 generations and through a history full of twists and turns, it has never ceased to cultivate the vine with passion and diligence. The year 2017 was the year of renewal with the return to the estate of the last generation whose members have had diverse careers, some in IT, others in the entertainment world, or a few other trades. The combination of age-old family traditions and modernity resulting from the varied experiences of the members of our renewed team provides us with the energy and enthusiasm to extend this adventure with a virtuous approach (Terra Vitis and HVE) and then towards organic farming with a certification planned for 2023.

Other little stories

The improvement of quality is the greatest challenge that the winegrowers of our territory have had to face during the last decades thanks to their work and their attachment to this exceptional terroir. We have taken up this challenge with pride and the meeting with a couple of passionate people who have been working here for ten years has allowed us to create an atypical and contrasted team whose characteristics can be found in the wines of the Domaine de la Vaillère which have already been distinguished and awarded many times, notably with a prize of excellence awarded by the jury of the Uzès wine fair.
