"A rare discovery. A natural red that is delightfully unexpected!"
My family has been growing vines for more than a century : Blaise is actually Blaise Granier, my great-great-grandfather who was born in 1851, and died in 1934. That’s why I called the wine Le vin de Blaise.
Blaise Granier’s parents were educated farmers (I have lovely handwritten letters from them) and he succeeded in wine sales in Paris in the 1870’s , then came back to his village when his father died in 1901: the village is Sainte-Cécile-les-vignes, near Cairanne and Rasteau. He had the first car of the village, and was really a funny and talented man.
He gave the estate to his only-daughter Jeanne, who gave it to her only-daughter Paulette, who married my grandfather. My father inherited of all this, and now I supervise the work on the vineyards.
