Henri Prudhon born in Saint-Aubin in 1921, is at the origin of the estate.

Son of a winegrower, he married in 1945.

That is how the HENRI PRUDHON estate was born, from the wine-producing heritage that each spouse inherited from previous generations.

Their second child Gerard, born in 1949, was fascinated by this wonderful craft and came back to work with his parents.

In those days, the estate's harvest was mostly sold as grape must or wine to the region's wine merchants.

In the early 80s, Gerard wanted to develop bottling and direct marketing activities, well aware of the quality potential the estate wines possessed.
