Domaine Les Cailloux

In 1971, André Brunel took over the running of the estate. Under his impetus, the Domaine grew rapidly, acquiring vineyards in the Côtes du Rhône and Vin de Pays regions, and launching the famous Cuvée Centenaire in 1989. He also introduced important changes in the vineyard management process, more specifically by being one of the first in Chateauneuf du Pape to use grass cover, but also to adopt a non-chemical approach to vine cultivation.

In 2012, his son Fabrice Brunel joined him to continue the family tradition.
