The Stehelin family has been winegrowers for 5 generations. Nicole and Frédéric have been running the Paillère en Pied-Gû estate since 1978. Bertrand, their oldest son, works with them and started his own estate “Bertrand Stehelin” in 2004. He started with 4 acres and gradually expanded his estate.
The vineyard is located northwest of the Dentelles de Montmirail, the vines are between 100 meters and 300 meters above sea level, making the wines fresh and complex. The vines are 70 to 90 years old and the maturation takes 24 months and is done in oak barrels.
