Jérome Quiot

The Quiot Family, a winemaker family since 1748… with a few key people who have marked the development of the properties.
Since the 80’s, this is Jérôme Quiot, with his wife Geneviève, who allowed the development of the domaines.
• Establishment of the vineyard at the locality « Les Combes d’Arnevels » in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the 80’s.
• Acquisition of the Domaine de Verlaque in 2002.
• Acquisition of the Trignon Castle in 2007.

In parallel, Jérôme played an important role in the wine’s world successively at local, regional and national level in institutions such as the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Federation, the General Syndicate of Côtes-du-Rhône Winegrowers, Interrhone and many others and he became President of National Institute of Origin and Quality in the 2000’s. After these years of commitment to the French viticulture, Jérôme became president of the Wine University in Suze-la-Rousse.

The story ended suddenly on November the 25th 2018, leaving to Florence and Jean-Baptiste, his children - already working for the family company for almost 20 years - the care of managing the domaines on their own.

Fruity wines, representative of the appellation

Our « Hommage à Jérôme Quiot » are wines which, by their fruity side are approachable to many amateurs. They put forward their characteristics of the appellation they belong to. We chose to make these wines “ Pleasure Wines “ combining the terroirs tradition and a fruity trend for a wise and relaxed consumption

From home and elsewhere

Lots of our « Hommage à Jérôme Quiot » wines come from our own vines, our own familial domains, with the production of different blend in our cellars. That’s why they can wear the “Vignerons Independants” logo.
However, given our winemaker know-how, the climatic complexity and our areas that sometimes don’t allow us to satisfy all our customers’ demands, it’s also possible that we call on our winemaker colleagues or cooperative in order to select wines we wish to affix our name on. For these selected wines our leitmotif is "we wish we had produce them".
