Towards the end of the 20th century

 

In 1992 their daughter Françoise, dental surgeon married Frédéric Boudat, podiatrist. They decide to change of careers and take over the family vineyard to carry on the tradition as becoming the 5t generation at the head of the business!

They put all their energy to renovate, restructure and expand the vineyard. Today, they own 150 hectares (370 acres) of vineyards located in 3 different areas. Their efforts are well rewarded by receiving every year many medals at wine competitions.
