Our vineyard, the only professional wine-growing operation still in activity in the village of Montaigu, in the French Jura, owes its origin to the Carthusian monks who were, in the 13th century, the first to cultivate vines on the slopes of the foothills of the Jura Mountains, known locally as the Revermont, overlooking Lons-le-Saunier.
The Pignier family acquired the estate sold as “national property” in 1794.
As the children of Paulette and François Pignier, we are the 7th generation to run the vineyard and have been managing operations collectively since 1991.
It is together that we decided, from the outset, and somewhat against all odds, to launch into the challenge of biodynamics, a practice that we have been pleased to promote for more than 20 years by exclusively producing wines that bear the unique taste of our own vines.

D’où le glissement de terrain… Il faudra donc arracher une partie de la parcelle, redrainer, retravailler le terrain et replanter, c’est la vie du vigneron…
