Background Winery

François Villard is one of the stars of the syrah and one of the pioneers in the northern Rhône.

He came to winegrowing after a career in restaurants, where he caught the love of wine. 

He became at full time a winegrower in 1991, and was entirely self taught, although he has a close friendship with Yves Cuilleron (Another Legend of the winegrowing).

His domaine has gradually grown, as has the range he offers, and he now owns and sources from 30 hectares. François Villard was also one of the three winemakers involved with the Vins de Vienne project, who planted vines on the other side of the Rhône in Seyssuel.
