Condrieu - St Joseph
News and Events
The Boissonnet Domain is a family tradition which goes back to the XVII century. The estate is home to 11 hectares of vineyards, breeded with love to offer fresh-flavoured St-Joseph and Condrieu.
Following the path of his grandfather, Frédéric Boissonnet takes back the family domain in 1990 and continues to build its legacy today. The XVII century estate hides a vault, discovered by chance in 1993 by his father, André Boissonnet. This well kept secret is also used today to raise the grapes in the respect of tradition.
A long held family tradition
The Boissonnet Domain perpetuates the family tradition started in the XVII century within its wine cellars. With great care, craftsmanship and a longing for quality, Frédéric Boissonnet re-launched the family activity and pays tribute to his ancestors with the cuvée Bélive.

When looking at the landscapes between Vienne and Tain l'Hermitage we can see the steep slopes rivers flowing through the suspended vineyards.
A perfect harmony between water, land and sky creates the uniqueness of the region's wines. Frédéric strives to cultivate the best grapes. As he simply says : « Without good grapes, you can't make good wines ».
Saint Joseph and Condrieu
The red Saint Joseph is entirely made from Syrah vines, the best known variety in the region. The Syrah, rich by its quality in terms of taste and freshness, contributes to the reputation of its wines.
The Boissonnet Domain also breeds Roussanne and Marsanne vines to produce its white St Joseph, giving this elegant wine the perfect equilibrium between fruity and fresh.
Finally, the Condrieu, a world-known wine made from Viognier, distinguishes itself by its somptuousness, its mineral qualities and its large palette of fruity flavours.
