Wine region AOC Côte Roannaise Story The Pothier family has cared for this estate for centuries The vines occupy most of it, with a some cattle farming as in plots not suitable for grapes. In 1916, Blaise Pothier is killed in the war; the estate is taken over by his sister and her husband, Claude Paire. In 1949, Benoît Paire, their son, inherited the estate and started modernizing it. His son, Georges, took his place in 1974. Passionate about vine, he started planting again, helped by his wife, Denise. The vine surface went up to 5 ha. In 2005, Romain joined his parents and got installed, taking his turn in the tradition. Today, they are certified Biodynamic.
