History :

The Mestre family is one of the older of Chateauneuf, wine grower since four generations : Marius, Jean, Jacques and now, Christophe

Jean was cultivating 12 hectares. Jacques was supposed to become baker, but, thanks to a flour allergy, he started working with his father.

In 1966, he married Gabrielle MICHEL and over the years, thanks to them, the estate has been growing. In 1969, they sold their first bottle under the brand «Cuvée des Sommeliers ». The name was inspired by the location of the grand-father's cellar : rue des sommeliers (sommeliers' street)


Now, Christophe heads a 23 hectares estate. He's passionate about his work, the vineyard and the wine. He is involved in the production of fine wine, respecting traditions, authenticity and environment.
