Whether in Spain or France, the Villa family has always worked the land. Pierre-Jean never inherited a vineyard but he has harvested, visited cellars, tasted wines, and roamed the wine routes with friends. In his early carrier, he worked in Burgundy at Clos de Tart and Domaine de la Vougeraie. There, he followed the wine from its production to its commercialization.

 

In 2003, he returned to his native home and joined the trio (Cuilleron, Villard, Gaillard) of Les Vins de Vienne to become a partner and the keeper of the temple. In 2009, Pierre-Jean created his domaine in the heart of the northern Rhone and began his new life as a wine grower. Today, he has 10ha in production in Seyssuel, Cote Rotie (Brune), Condrieu, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage.

 

According to Pierre-Jean, a great wine is ultimately born from the respect of the land and its fruit. This is both evidence and a work ethic for him. In the vineyards, the only logic is to preserve the life of the soil to produce terroir wines. In the cellar, he treats the grapes with non-interventionist wine making: indigenous yeast and respect for the lunar calendar when racking and bottling. In the end, the wine must express this delicate balance between the typicity of the terroir and the wine maker's ethics.
