The François Pinon estate has been in family hands for 7 generations, and is now managed by the father-and-son duo. François took over the 37 acres in 1987 and now works alongside his son, Julien. They are Certified Organic, and their plots of land are non-contiguous which allows them to benefit from a range of soils, aspects, age of vines and exposure to weather.
