THREE GENERATIONS OF WINEMAKERS
It is 1925, when Pierre et Marie BLANC leave their home-town in Lozère to settle down in Uzès where, with their purchase of a farmhouse, they are going to establish the Domain Saint Firmin. Truly passionate, they set up their own winery.
Their son, Emile, heir to this passion for the wine, takes over in 1950 and will expand the Domain Saint Firmin by planting noble grape varieties on the sunny hills of Uzès.
After Emile Blanc, in the 80s’, two of his sons, Didier et Robert, both animated by the same love towards this beautiful work as winemakers, develop the wine retailing as well as the tasting in the wine cellar.
With the familial savoir-faire having been carefully passed down, the succession was assured. This succession, by the two brothers becoming winemakers, will give its name to the vintage “Les deux frères.”
The 4th generation
It’s already in the domain: Guillaume, Robert’s son, is studying in order to get a diploma in oenology/viticulture… The Domain Saint Firmin still has some beautiful days ahead.
Vineyard but not only…
At first, in 1925, the Domain Saint Firmin included 5 hectares of grapevines. In the 70s’, it had expanded to 40 hectares. Nowadays, Saint Firmin exploits 70 hectares of land, with 45 for the vines and 25 for cereals. The original parcels are carefully looked after and produces the vintage “L’Absolu.”
