Together, this husband and wife team created the estate in 1990, at a time when Patrice was still in charge of his family’s domaine (Daniel Rion).

He built his own winery in 2000 and created his negociant business, SARL Patrice Rion.

Patrice’s reputation was launched in the early 1980s, when he vastly increased the presence of his family domaine on the international market. Research and innovation, both in winemaking and farming – use of screwcaps, farming to increase leaf surface area -- gave him a reputation as an innovator.
