About the Winery

In 1769 a village assembly at the request of Claude Francois Mure de Larnage new lord attributes a piece of vineyard to each family and this for his personal consumption. From this era of lords until the 1930s the family property will expand a few neighboring plots, vinify its wines and sell them for local consumption. At the return of the property by Louis Belle (Philippe's grandfather), a profound change will take place. Indeed Louis BELLE liked to work his vines but did not like to vinify the wine, and he joined the cellar cooperative Tain l'Hermitage in 1933. However, as a grand winemaker, he will continue to acquire some beautiful parcels on the commune of Larnage and Tain l'hermitage. When his son Albert took over the family estate in the 1970s, the estate spread over two villages (Larnage and Tain) and covered about 4 ha.
