Domaine Guy Farge
Back to producers by region list


The estate represents 22 hectares spreading over several appellations like Saint Joseph, Condrieu, Cornas and Saint Péray. The slopes are made of granit and the soil is very filtering, the vines are only rarely esposed to the drought. The cultivation of the vines is done by terraces, supported by dry stone walls.  The work on the vine is exclusively manual, from pruning to harvesting. Difficult and challenging, it is necessary to have the courage and patience to take care of each vine stock planted on the 22 hectares (about 6,000 vines/ha) before being rewarded by the quality of the wines from this amazing terroir!

A family history

The first winemaker of the family started his activity in 1920 with 12 hectares. After 3 generations being grapegrowers, Guy Farge decided to vinify his grapes himself and in 2007 created his first cuvée. Since then he constantly enhanced the quality of his vines bringing more methods from the organic viticulture and reintroducing the work with the horse in his plots. In 2018 his son Thomas came back from Chicago where he graduated with a MBA and took over the family business.

Philosophy


In the constant concern for environmentally friendly working, the methods of sustainable agriculture adopted (minimal use of treatment products) have naturally given a new place of honour to the horse, which passes through the rows of vines of certain plots to turn the soil around, and thus weed and aerate the soil.
