The family tradition has been passed on to the great-granddaughters of the founders, Mrs. Frédérique Poret-Rebeyrolle with her husband Mr. Hugues Poret. Both coming from winemaking families, Hugues is in charge of the vineyards and Frédérique is assisted by her mother with marketing and winemaking process.
