Pierre Amadieu
follow the winemaker on
Since 1929, the Amadieu family has been a staple in Gigondas, starting with Pierre Amadieu, the grandfather of the current winemaker of the same name, who began with a small estate. By 1954, he expanded by acquiring 280 acres in "Grand Romane" and later added "La Machotte" vineyards, establishing a prominent position in AOC Gigondas. The vineyards on sloped terrains follow the natural contours of the land, emphasizing sustainable practices such as drainage and grass cover to combat erosion and maintain low yields for aromatic concentration. The old vines, originating from Pierre’s initial plantings, receive meticulous care, enhancing grape quality through hand-harvesting and traditional vineyard techniques. Recent additions include 1.63 hectares of Cinsault and 5.25 hectares of Syrah, chosen for their adaptability to the region's arid limestone soil and higher altitudes, reflecting the estate's commitment to environmental stewardship and innovative viticulture.
