The history of Domaine Guy Allion by Cédric ALLION

Domaine du Haut Perron has been passed down from father to son for more than 4 generations. Each has helped to expand and improve the quality of its production. Until the 1950s, my grandfather, Raymond Allion, grew the estate in polyculture like most farms in Touraine. A few acres of vines, cereals, meadows to feed the horse and other farm animals. It was not until 1968 that my father Guy decided to devote himself gradually to viticulture and succeeded in 1991.

Cradled in this environment that I loved, I decided from my childhood to continue this activity.

To be able to bring a new impetus to the domain I completed the inheritance of the family know-how by a viticultural and oenological formation in the high school of Beaune. This training allowed me to enrich my practical knowledge with the latest techniques. It will be concretized by the modernization and the development of the family property, since my arrival on the Domain in 1999.
