In 1989, Odile and Olivier Teissèdre acquired the Clos des Bérioles, a vineyard originally planted in 1809. The family domaine started out with 3 hectares of vines located on clay-limestone slopes. Olivier loved working in the vines but instead of vinifying and bottling under his own name, he set up a contract with the cooperative.
His son, Jean Teissèdre, decided to take on the family vineyards, studying viticulture and enology in Mâcon, then furthered his experience by seeking out other viticulture and vinification experience in Burgundy, Beaujolais, and Sancerre before returning home to Saint Pourçain. In 2010, the family’s contract with the Saint Pourçain cooperative ended, and Jean decided not to renew it. Instead, he laid the groundwork for the construction of their own cellar and buying an additional 4 hectares of vineyards. The cellar was finished in 2011, when they first vinified for their own label.
