Domaine Giraud

The story of Domaine Giraud began in 1974 when Pierre and Mireille Giraud took on 4 hectares of Vines as tenant farmers. Pierre, a descendant of the Armenier family, is the son of a long line of winegrowers going back more than six centuries. Mireille’s family owned the village distillery for many generations.


Little by little they purchased pieces of rented land and in 1981 Pierre turned the distillery into a cellar. In that same year the first of the domaine’s wines were produced. In 1987 the Armenier family vineyards were divided among the family members. Pierre and Mireille inherited 8 hectares including some 100 year old vines. In 1998 the first estate bottled wine was sold and the Giraud children Marie and Francois began their involvement in the domaine.


The family vineyards currently cover 19 hectares and are well spread over the appellation. They have century old Grenache vines in the lieux-dits of La Crau, Terres Blanches, Les Gallimardes and Pignan (next to Rayas).
