Vignerons Ardéchois

Les Vignerons Ardéchois, pioneering the renewal of Ardèche vineyard

In the early twentieth century, a handful of farmers started to join forces.
In 1967, the Vignerons Ardéchois built together their first winery, a shared facility where efficiency and solidarity were working hand in hand. A complete redeployment of the vineyard was conducted : both international and indigenous grape varieties were planted on their respective matching soils so we can respect the expression of our terroirs.

Today, Les Vignerons Ardéchois is a pool of 1 500 farmers with 12 wineries spread out on our 4 Ardèche Terroirs : Sandstone, Basalt, Gravette (calcareous clay), Pebble. We grow with passion  6 500 hectares of vineyards, including 500 Ha of parcel selections. This represents 85% of Southern Ardèche wine production.

Distributed in nearly 1 000 independent wine shops in France and over 40 countries around the world, our wines enjoy a growing reputation.

With a full control from our vineyard to your glass, The Vignerons Ardéchois is regarded as a succes model in the French wine industry.

Ardèche, naturally

The values that unite Vignerons Ardéchois since 1967 are the solidarity, the commitment and the respect of traditions. But most of all is the passion of those men and women deeply attached to their land, and that are dead set on having you discover their wines.

Southern Ardèche is a remote region with many remarkable natural sites (Ardèche Gorges, mountains, Préhistoric caves...) and an important cultural heritage (villages of characters, Romanesque churches, Gallo-Roman sites...). That is why we have a high concern for the environment and sustainability.

Since 2002 we are committed in an integrated pest management, and an eco-responsible approach was introduced in 2013 in partnership with Frayssinet, French Leader in organic fertilization. A significant part of our wines is certified organic, produced in Cévennes (Western Ardèche) as well as in our Rhône Valley vineyard (Eastern Ardèche).

And since our customers satisfaction is our priority, Vignerons Ardéchois is IFS Certified, Higher Level, since 2006. IFS is a standard for traceability and food safety.

Looking Towards the Future

Our quality requirement is permanent at all stages of the winemaking :

At Vignerons Ardéchois, winemakers and grapegrowers work hand in hand to constantly improve the vineyard management, data tracking and knowledge of the soils...

Each vineyard is assigned to its closest winery to vinify per terroir and ensure an impecable grape quality.

Over the years Vignerons Ardéchois has invested in modern and efficient production facilities :

  • 12 wineries with an ageing cellar located on each of our 4 Ardèche Terroirs.

  • 43 000 hl of stainless steel tanks capacity dedicated to blending, 2 bottling lines, 2 Bag in Box packing lines and a 5 000 m² warehouse.

Vignerons Ardéchois is one of the leading IGP and Varietal wine producers.

With 2.5 million visitor per year, Ardèche is a great French sightseeing place. Very committed to our relationship with the consumer, we created in June 2013  Néovinum. our flagship store and visitor center that hostes every year nearly 120 000 visitors. Located in Ruoms close to the Ardèche Gorges and Pont d'Arc Cavern - Grotte Chauvet (an UNESCO World Heritage Site), Néovinum contributes to promote our Ardèche wines.

Vignerons Ardéchois is more than ever looking towards the future. In 2014 we launched a plan to help young grapegrowers to take over vineyards, thus encouraging a generation renewal and preparing to face the growing demand on Ardèche Wines.
