We take pleasure in welcoming you to our Internet site and in letting you discover the Chirat vineyard.
The history of « the Chirat vineyard » really began in 1984 with a young farmer’s desire to realize his dream : that of changing from the mixed farming done by his family for several generations, in order to plunge headlong into vine-growing on the vertiginous, terraced hillsides of Condrieu.
It was no easy task. The apple, cherry and apricot trees which had taken root on the slopes, had to be pulled up so that the Viognier and the Syrah could take full advantage of this privileged setting.
It was 24 years later that father and son entered into partnership to create the EARL VIGNOBLES CHIRAT as it is known today.
Young agriculturist since July 2012, Aurelien seeks to uphold the quality of his father’s wines whilst bringing in the experience of his studies and the work he had done in other vineyards (New Zealand, the south of France and Burgundy).
This Rhone Valley domain has much for you to discover.
We wish you a good visit, GILBERT and AURELIEN CHIRAT
