Bernard Defaix


Fourth generation from a family of vine-growers, Bernard Defaix started with 2 ha in 1959. From this period, a method to protect the vineyard against spring frost was discovered. Thanks to this, the vine-growers could be sure to have a minimum of harvest every year and so they began to develop stable trade markets. 

The two sons of Bernard have been managing the domain since twenty years or so. 

  • Sylvain is in charge of the vinification, the ageing, the bottling and the preparation of orders. 
  • Didier takes care of the vineyard and the general management of the domain. 
  • Helene, Didier’s wife, looks after the administrative and the commercial part. 


So, from the vine to the final customer, the family looks after all the operations!
