Winery

One estate. One family.

The family estate is made up of 5 hectares of vines, spread over 23 plots, all located in the place of production of Aigle and under the controlled designation of origin (AOC) “Chablais”. The first part of the vines is located on the hillsides of Beauregard, facing the majestic Dents-du-Midi. The other part stretches languorously around the Château d’Aigle, home to the museum of vines and wine.

Since the 1990s, we have been working in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way of production. To preserve the environment and biodiversity, we leave grass in our vines. In the hillside, our terraced vines are supported by dry stone walls, maintained with family know-how.

Winemaking our passion.

Five generations of expression through the vine and wine, preserving the tradition of this winery as at its origins. From the winemaker of the past to the winemaker of today, Alain Emery continues in this same philosophy, drawing on all the knowledge built by his predecessors.
