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 (Domaine Gilles Robin) actually can be considered in 1920, when his great-grandfather - 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.

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.
