Gilles Robin - Hereditary winemaker, which "Figaro Magazine" in 2008, wrote: "For ten years, he rose to the level of the best manufacturers and deservedly received worldwide recognition." Year of creation winery Domain Gilles Robin actually can be considered as 1920, when the great-grandfather of Gilles - Louis Pasquion - bought a small (1.27 ha) picturesque land and began producing wine for personal consumption. Great-grandfather was not wrong in choosing Hermitage terroir - wine to obtain decent and beautiful. Alberic grandfather put a lot of effort in the development work Syrah. Father Gilles - Michelle - in 1965 expanded the family ownership, acquiring another 3 hectares of land, and began a great job transplant development of vineyards and terroir, based on the research of new lands. In 1996, when he passed the baton Gilles, vineyards already reached 10 hectares.
Today the vineyard Domaine Gilles Robin grow vines with an average age of 40 years, but there are "young" areas. They introduced organic methods work using compost, organic fertilizers and reasonable treatment. Nothing has changed in the traditional methods used by previous generations, and most importantly, how many years ago, work is being done with great respect for the land and the environment. Gilles continues the family tradition, based on the disclosure of the nature and complexity of Syrah and Marsanne varieties - two great varieties of the Rhone Valley.
