THE FARGE ESTATE
The vineyard of Domaine Farge now has 20 hectares of vines, spread along the Rhone valley on four appellations: Saint-Joseph, Cornas, Saint-Péray and Condrieu.
As the estate consists mainly of steep terraced plot, the work of the vine is exclusively manual, from pruning to harvesting.
Looking for a more environmentally friendly work, we have chosen to convert to organic farming.
In order to extend our philosophy in the cellar, we work our wines following the lunar calendar and limiting the use of inputs.
As a good craftsman of the terroir, we are committed to presenting unique wines reflecting our plots and our philosophy.

THE PAST OF DOMAINE FARGE
1920FAMILY AFFAIRA family story that began in 1920, when Henri Farge bought 12 hectares of vines from a Norman general. He will grow the fruits for sale in cooperative winery, just as his son and grandson André Farge will do with and after him.
1980RENEWALThe estate took off again with Guy Farge, who took over the management of the estate in 1980.
2007THE WINERYCooperator and administrator at the cave de Tain, it was in 2007 that Guy decided to vinify his grapes. After completing his oenological studies at the University of Wine of Suze-la-Rousse, he left the cooperative environment to create his own winery in the heart of the family estate.
2010WORK & PASSIONWith his knowledge and ambitions, Guy Farge then realizes his life project as the culmination of the path traced by his ancestors, combining his work as a craftsman, his passion to produce quality wines with respect for nature and tradition, and his taste for sharing and conviviality in a place open to exchanges.
2018THE TRADITION CONTINUESIn a new momentum! Thomas, Guy's eldest son, took over the Domaine. Quite naturally Thomas made the choice of a transition to organic farming.

We support the development of an organic agriculture. We act to develop a viticulture that respects people and meets the challenges of sustainable development. We are involved in favor of the environment to think and create ways to produce more responsibly.
